    Default Can't install os x (any distro) + waiting for root device

    Hello,
    I hope someone here can help me.

    I have spent last couple of days trying to install leo on my workstation.
    My configuration is, Intel Q9450, Asus Striker II Formula (780i), XFX 9800GTX, 8GB of ram, LG GGW-H20LRB, 3 SATA II HDD (1st for Vista boot, 2nd for data, 3rd data and OS X boot).
    I have tried installing retail with boot-132 (computer restart every time before the gray screen with apple was supposed to show up), iATKOS 5i 10.5.5 and iDeneb v1.4 10.5.6 (both ended up with "Waiting for root device").
    I have tried unplugging the 1st two drives and moving the 3rd drive and the optical drive to 1st and 2nd channel on my sata controller, but still no luck.
    The error is connected with AppleNForceATA and it gives an error with "phy connection failed".

    Default

    OK, so I managed to install iPC 10.5.6, but when I try to boot, i just get errors. I think the problem is me choosing wrong kexts. Does anyone know what is the minimal combination of kexts requiered for iPC to sucessfully boot, without any extra drivers.
