I'm hoping someone might be able to provide some insight for me here.
I have a computer I have just built. It has 2xSSd drives 1 with osx mavericks, one with windows 8.1. It also has a 2TB hdd. (Hackintosh)
I got everything running fine initially. Dual booted no sweat. The 2TB hdd was formatted as exFAT so it could be shared.
The problems started when I tried transferring all my old files form an external 2TB drive to the shared one. The first time I tried with osx, and it crashed on me after about 200GB. The next time I tried with Windows, and it made it to 300GB before the system crashed and the computer restarted. I've tried this a couple of times. once or twice, the drive had to be repaired to run again.
I initially suspected the Hard drive was somehow at fault, but did a full drive scan with Western Digital's utility I got online (the drive is WD). And after the 4 hour scan, it came up as clean. SMART is all good of course. And no bad hard drive noises.
I'm currently doing a ram scan, but I'm not suspecting any magic to come of it there.
All parts are new. The 850 watt power supply should be sufficient. (It's powering the above hard drives, a gtx 770 graphics card, a 4770k cpu, and an h80i water cooler. So that's overkill so far as I can see. I haven't over-clocked any part of the computer yet.
What would be my next step in trouble shooting this bad boy? I'm scratching my head trying to work this out.
EDIT: I forgot to mention something else of potential importance.
The drive I am copying FROM is formatted osx extended. I had to use macdrive for the file transfer.
However I still had a system crash when copying from the osx extended external drive to the internal drive formatted in both exFAT and osx extended, I tried both formats. So I don't think it's a formatting incompatibility issue.
