    Default [Leo4All v3] waiting for root device

    Hi
    I installed Leo4all v3 on my desktop. The problem occurs on the 1st boot after install. here are the specs:

    Processor: Intel D925
    Mobo : Intel D946GZIS (946PL Chipset)
    HDD: 250GB WD ata drive 2 partitions (Vista 0,1 and Mac 0,2)
    HDD2: 150GB WD ata drive (backup)

    DVD Burner, CD drive, USB external HD

    I guess I am asking if my hardware will work? I have looked through the wiki but cant find all my hardware.

    I have found many different solutions to the "waiting for root device issue" but none have worked so far.

    Thanks for reading.

    Thanks for the replys guys.

    Re-Install via a USB DVD drive? Or will plugging one in and booting do the trick?

    Thanks

    My LAN card is Intel Pro 100. When looking at the wiki some installs work, others say it needs patching, but dont specify the patch used.

    Sound card is just listed as HD Audio Device. I have tried the Azilla patch but it didnt work, I am going to try to add it from the Leo4all disk.
