    Default [Boot Problem] Still Waiting for root device

    Hello everyone, first of all thank you for the help you may bring

    Yesterday i downloaded and burned Iatkos v.7 , checked the md5 and everything was ok.

    I have a Dell XPS 420
    Nvidia 8800GT
    Core2Quad q6600
    2 Sata drives non raid
    (if you need more specifical infon tell)

    I booted the DVD witoˇhout any problem,opened utility Disk and created a full partition in one of the drives for MACOSX and formated the other as free space.

    Everything went ok, installed, and had the problem with Boot.Slist, but installed Chameleon 1, instead of 2, and problem solved, the System booted,
    Gray screen with apple and spining wheel Yayˇˇˇ

    But the wheel kept spinning foreeeeever, and after a few minuts a "prohibited" icon apeared, (gray circle with line crossing, sory im no t english native ).

    So i tried booting using -v -f, and the last 6 lines, seen to be the problem, theyre

    BTCoesistence feature not supported!
    wl0: Broadcom BCM4318 802.11 Wireless controller
    5.10.38.35
    Firewire...now active
    Extension com.apple.driver.iTunesPhoneDriver" has no explicit jerbek dependency using 6.0.
    [HCIController][ConfigurePM]power parent ready after 1 tries
    Still waiting for root device
    Still waiting for root device
    Still waiting for root device
    And "Still waiting for root device" keeps appearing after every minute or so, obiously theres the problem.

    Anyone knows what is it, and how to solve it=?

    Thank you so much

    Ok problem solved, nice fancy animation and music to welcome MACOSX

    It may help other xps420 owners:

    I went to the BIOS configuration F12, and deactivated the raid controller, now it booted and seems to work perfect, i will tell you after configuring it ;D

    Im happy

    Default Still Waiting for root device

    What you want to do is change your primary master to your kalyway drive and secondary to hard drive.
