    Default Help !! - stuck on "waiting for root device"

    I spent over a week trying to get Leo working.. I tried on two different computers, etc. it installs find but never boots.

    Last night, I tried it on IBM thinkpad, iDeneb v1.4. Only 1 HD, 1 partition. Install went fine, but when I try to boot, it just gets stuck on "still waiting for root device". Here is what I tried:

    Made disk0 partition 1 active using (fdisk -e /dev/rdisk0 --> p --> f 1 --> write --> y)

    -v -x
    -v rd=disk0s1

    I am pulling my hair out.. any idea? Please help !

    Thanks
