Whenever I attempt to install MacOS using Kalyway or iATKOS i get the dreaded "still waiting for root device" message. I mess with the BIOS (i.e. setting Boot device, etc) and get the alternative message "system config file 'com.apple.boot.plist'" not found. It's either one or the other.
When I use the Boot-132 disk i see the "system config file 'com.apple.boot.plist'" message flash. I follow the instructions for putting in the retail disk, in this case "Mac OS X Snow Leopard" and nothing happens.
Here is my hardware:
Processor : Intel Core i7 CPU 920@ 2.67GHz
Mainboard : AGP PCI IMB USB i2c/SMBus
BIOS : INTEL - 84f
I currently have Windows Vista installed on one HD, located in the last SATA slot, and I have the unformatted HD onto which I intend to install MacOS in the First SATA slot.
