    Hello,

    I'm booting with EFI 1.08.

    Mainboard: ASUS P5Q pro
    Processor: Intel Core2 Quad Q9400

    What can I do?

    Thanks for help.

    So, are you trying to load retail DVD ?
    Have you set acpi enable in your bios?
    Try boot with -x32, maybe?
    By efi do you mean a boot cd?

    Edit: still waiting root ... Mean your sata/ata controller is not yet recognize , if you using bootcd you may want customize the kext in
    preboot.dmg or use bootable USB with retail installer in it.
    Methode is here :http://www.projectosx.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=309
