    Question Still waiting for root device

    Attempting to install iATKOS Mac OSx86 Leopard 10.5.5 Intel. The installation went through fine, but attempts at booting just result in the "still waiting for root device error"



    I have tried to fix this using all the steps on here:

    Technical FAQ - OSx86

    I have switched my two hard drives around turning drive 1 into drive 0, didnt help.
    --


    This is the other message I get:

    waiting for boot volume with UUID 74FE264C-13DF-34B0-83CD-C43DA2bFDA73
    waiting on <dict id="0"><key>IoProviderClass</key><StringID="1">10 Resources</string><key>10ResourceMatch</key><stringid="2">boot-uuid-media</string></dict>


    I think its because of the bootloader looking in the wrong place for the OSX, but i dont know what to change.

    The vista boot loader and drive config is this:

    Code:
    There are a total of 3 entries listed in the Vista Bootloader.
    Bootloader Timeout: 30 seconds.
    Default OS: Microsoft Windows Vista
    
    Entry #1
    
    Name:  Windows 7
    BCD ID:  {ce196f05-e03e-11dd-b178-d6ca7ab8b836}
    Drive:  F:\
    Bootloader Path:  \Windows\system32\winload.exe
    Windows Directory:  \Windows
    
    Entry #2
    
    Name:  Microsoft Windows Vista
    BCD ID:  {current}
    Drive:  C:\
    Bootloader Path:  \Windows\system32\winload.exe
    Windows Directory:  \Windows
    
    Entry #3
    
    Name:  NST Mac OS X
    BCD ID:  {ce196f0c-e03e-11dd-b178-d6ca7ab8b836}
    Drive:  F:\
    Bootloader Path:  \NST\nst_mac.mbr
    
    
    
    2 hard drives in the pc:
    
    
    Drive One -> C:
    Drive Two -> D: F: + Mac OSx86
    {current} -> IS -> 75ef2c3d-82fb-11dd-9623-e1070a9a7ea0


    the computer is a dell dimension 9200, intel quad core Q6600.

    To recover Win Vista or Win seven bootloader, just boot with Installation disc to repair the Bootloader, then you should be able to boot normally.

    Now seems like you didnt have success installation... please post your full specs in the installation forum, and how did you customize, NO LINKS or I kill you ;P
