    Default [iATKOS 2.0i] Still waiting for root device :|?

    Hello there
    2 weeks ago I have installed iATKOS 2.0i. got it working perfectly with some minimum configuration at installation (basic system + ToH's 9.2.0 Kernel + ntfs3g)
    Today I have tried upgrading 10.5.3 using Netkas tutorial and I have screwed my whole Leopard :|
    I used MacDrive to backup all of my stuff from Leopard and formatted the Macintosh HD using GParted Live CD. surprisingly, when trying to boot from the DVD so I can reinstall Leopard I am getting some crappy "still waiting for root device" message (which is weird since I have already installed a copy of iATKOS using the same disk on the same computer).
    The line before I got still waiting for root was "AppleIntelPIIXPATA: Secondary PCI IDE channel is disabled"
    what can I do so I could reinstall my Leopard?

    Specs:
    Intel Core 2 Duo (Pentium) E2140 - 1.6GHz @ 1.84GHz (OC'd)
    Biostar 945GC Micro 775
    Kingston 2GB DDR2 667MHz
    Western Digital WD2500KS-00MJB0 250GB SATA2 (16MB Bufer - 7200RPM) {Windows + Storage HD}
    Hitachi DeskStar HDS721616PLA380 160GB SATA2 (8MB Buffer - 7200RPM) {Macintosh HD}
    Inbuilt Realtek RTL8139 Ethernet 10/100LAN - Inbuilt Realtek ALC862 HD Audio Controller (As far as I know they are supported right of the box in Leopard)
    Sparkle GeForce 8500GT 512MB HDMI HDTV DVI-D PCI-E
    (UPDATE: Tried JaS 10.4.8 which was installed before successfully on my computer now shows the same message "waiting for root device", ditto for iATKOS 1.0ir2 and BrazilMac's DVD)

    Default

    Here's an update:
    I have plugged off all of my PSU cables from my mobo + removed my RAM sticks and reinserted them - from some reason it solved the waiting for root device problem. lol
