    Default Waiting on Root Device

    Ok first of i hope I'm posting this in the correct section and if I'm not please don't flame me, I'm a super n00b. Well the title pretty much says it all, when i try to install IDeneb 1.4 on my computer booting with -v i always get "waiting on root device". That's pretty much all i can tell you because like I said I'm very new to this, i hope this will be an easy problem to solve and to whoever does eventually help me I will forever be in your debt.

    I am honestly not familiar with iDeneb, I use iPC. If you are getting that error you have probably selected the wrong kext's at some point...I have seen people posting issues with this error wtih everything from sata kexts to ps2 kexts. I myself have had the issue with macfuse but my problem was intermittent.

    You could try this:

    I'm sure there are other solutions out there, just got to find what is right for your situation.
