    Default SIL controler an waiting for root device

    hi,
    im pretty new to this and i already tried some things with no sucess

    are there any chances to get a
    amd64 on a K8N-E deluxe with a damn SIL RAID adapter to work properly?

    i have a raid0 with 2 sata drives, a primary master ide drive and a primary slave ide dvd.

    booting a dvd titeld "Mac OS X 10.4.9 Intel SSE3 [JaS 10.4.8 AMD-Intel-SSE2-SSE3 with PPF1 & PPF2.iso + JaS.10.4.9.Combo.Update.Intel.SSE3.zip]"

    im getting this "still waiting for root device" error.

    says that some device is blocking the bus in the -v

    this occurs with the raid turned off also (in the bios, no sata hardisks, only those 2 ide devices (hdd and dvd))
    an also with the raid turned on an without the ide hdd.

    i read that this is a common error an that it has something to do with the sata.

    i can't switch anything to legacy or something like that

    would it help to get a non ide dvd drive so that there are no ide drives left in the computer?

    or is there something bigger that makes it impossibel get this system runnig on this machine? (because i couldnt find anything from my hardware in the wiki)


    on my notebook everything worked fine until the end of the installation, then im told that i have to connect a keyboard, doesn▀t make much sense because i used the notebokkkeyboard during instalation.
    but the notebokk seems absolutly hopeless for me cause its a supermarket one with no real info about the hardware
