Seems it happened when I want to install other softwares before (but I can't remember which). I have a 128G SSD as the system disk, but it doesn't even appear as an option in the installer. How can I deal with this?

BTW. My SSD's name is Macintoch SSD, which is not appeared on the following window.

UPDATE: 2014-12-30 I've reinstalled my OS X and now the TeamViewer .pkg can be installed correctly.

GUI to select the distination disk of the installation

Translation of this window (according to my poor English, messages with en-US locale should be different):

Top: Installing TeamViewer


  • Introduction
  • License
  • Destination Select
  • Installation Type
  • Installation

  • Select a Destination
  • Select the disk where you want to install the TeamViewer software.
    • GlacJAY: ...
    • Macintosh HD: ...
    • TeamViewer: ...
  • TeamViewer can't be installed on this disk. You can only install this software on the disk that is running OS X.
  • Are you running the installer as Administrator?

  • @patrix I'm not very sure. I just run the installer as my main - and only - account, which should has the admin privileges, or does it?

  • @GlacJAY yes, if it's your only account then it will have admin privileges

This might be a silly suggestion but if you select the "GlacJAY" drive and hit the down arrow key on your keyboard does the "Macintosh SSD" drive appear?

Unfortunately the Installer window can't be resized and with the current style of disappearing scrollbars, if there are more than three available disks it might not be obvious.

  • I've tried this, but there is only this three options. My SSD is just not there.

  • If you eject your removable GlacJAY disk, does it just show two disks then? Commented Dec 27, 2014 at 3:40
  • yes, exactly (padding).

  • @GlacJAY does "Macintosh SSD" icon appears in sidebar or desktop, when you enable the preference in Finder?

  • @nelson I'm not really sure, cause I've reinstalled my system. I think it does appears, according to my memory.
