    Specs:

    GA-EP45-UD3P

    Intel Q9400

    SATA 160GB HD

    SATA samsung DVD drive

    When i boot with grub using -v it gets stuck and says "still waiting for root device."

    I have AHCI enabled.

    I plugged my DVD drive into the yellow SATA port instead of the purple one and i got past the looking for root device part.

    However, my screen is now stuck with a bunch of purple, blue, red, and green dots on it.

    The problem was my ATI video card. I booted with -x and all was good.

    My hackintosh is up and running. I posted a guide/tutorial for others to check out.
