    Default Unable to boot OSX directly from HD, have to start DVD bootloader

    My laptop is a Sony Vaio VGN-TX Series, specifically the PCG-4F1M, VGN-TX1XP.

    Installed IDENEB v1.6, 10.5.8 Lite Edition.

    I get "still waiting for root device"

    Tried all boot options (-s, -x, -rd=disk0s1 etc.), but does not work.

    If choose DVD as the boot device from Bios.

    I boot from the DVD installation disk, and just when the DVD bootloader kicked in asking me if I want it to proceed to load the OSX installation, or press f8 for boot options, I pressed f8, and at that prompt I typed rd=disk0s2.

    Surprise - the installed OSX boots.

    I have tried installing several bootloader versions (Chameleon, EFI), but none seems to be able to boot the hd OSX directly.

    Any suggestions?
