Marvell 88SE9480 controller

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have this (as shown by DPCIManager)


"Marvell Technology Group Ltd., 88SE9480 SAS/SATA 6Gb/s RAID controller"


Would you know how to make this one work? I don't suppose it would be an AHCI controller kext I would be editing for this, would I?


I can get it show up with Highpoint firmware (rr2710 through rr2722 and HighPointRR.kext) but it shows as 1TB and disables my 8TB HGST SAS HDD under OSX while showing up working with either firmware (marvell or highpoint) under win7 on the same z170k PC.

you can try looking at the some of the osx raid kexts in /Library/Extensions like HighpointRR.kext as I see it has RR2722_Controller defined in it and modifying the info plist to add your device id's to the iopciprimary string also you can click on the magnifying glass in dpci manager and see what it suggests.

    • Welcome to OSXL! We are looking for volunteers to join us!
      Welcome to OSXL! 😀
      We, at OSXL, are a bunch of passionate Hackintoshers who have joined together for creating a community to drive learning, sharing and helping people interested in running Apple Mac software or tinkering with it on non-Apple hardware. We do research and development on a voluntary basis in our free time.
      Since its inception in 2010, our team evolved with people joining and going for all sorts of reasons. Nevertheless, this team brought out some of the best people who contributed to making the Hackintosh community progress. Unlike some other players, we’re very proud to we have consistently offered an ad-free website without calling for financial support, except on very rare occasions, and also made one of the best looking sites.😍 
      Back in the days, we also designed our "EDP" project to provide a common OS X installation package and a unified post-installation tool. EDP basically offered a central hub for system tuning. The project went through several phase and the latest one is currently Work In Progress. We also completed some research work and developed drivers, fixes and patches for some hardware.
      We recently revamped our site to a more modern look and implemented latest security features so to give our members an improvise quality of experience.
      Also, we are looking to expand for diversifying the content on our site not only to Apple OS, but also Linux, Android and Windows in the very near future with research and development as tech industry has changed a lot recent years and there is so much we can do in other areas and be relevant to what we do. 
      We are looking for passionate and dedicated people who can invest time and efforts in our community on projects like EDP and many others. 
      Drop us a line here in comments or through PM if interested so that we can chat about motivation, skills and ideas.
      You can find our crew list here if you would like to PM instead: OSXL Crew
