Still waiting for root device (yes/no)
First, I have three machines here at home: a netbook atom 250GB (2/3 Windows 7 - 1/3 MacOs), a Notebook Centrino Duo with MacOS X iDeneb 10.5.8 and a PC AMD X2 with 4 HDs: 3 SATAs e 1 IDE. This last one is my trouble. I have installed on it Windows 7 (SATA) and dual boot with MacOs iAktos v7 10.5.8 (IDE), who is realy slow to load. The only distro that i could not receive the message "still waiting for root device", with the same BIOS setup, was iAktos v7. All the others stoped during installation. If i try to load Darwin with rd=disk0 or rd=disk0s2 (where iAktos is installed), i have a kernel panic. This is happening also with Snow Leopard by Hazard (10.6.1-10.6.2).
I would like to know if, because it fails with one distro and do not with other, if i can "build" one for SL who can works (and how to do it), or if there is any way to install SL from inside my MacOs Hackintosh 10.5.8. Or anything else...
My BIOS allow me to setup this features: ASUS M2A-VM HDMI
1- Onboard SATA Controller: Enabled(dis)
2- Onboard SATA Type: AHCI, (IDE/RAID)
3- IDE DMA Transfer Access: Enabl
4- On chip IDE channel 10: enabl
5- IDE preetch mode: enabld
6- ACPI Suspend time S3(STR)-S1(POS)-S1&S3
7-ACPI APIC support enabled
Thank you for your help
