    Default Still waiting for root device

    Hi, iv been trying to install osx 10.6 for a couple of days now but i cant pass the still waiting for root device.

    My system:
    MB: Gigabyte EP35-DS3
    CPU: Intel E8400
    HD1: Samsung 400gb (Sata)
    HD2: Seagate 1tb (Sata)
    GPU: XFX GF 8800GTS
    Just got a new ide disk that i hoped would fix my problem (WD IDE 320gb).

    I tried with "SnowOSX 10.6 Ultimate" and ToHLeoX86 but i get the same message.
    I tried with following comands: -v -x -f cpus=1 platform=X86PC without luck.
    i changed some bios settings but still the same.
    my IDE drive is connected as master and IDE dvd-rom as slave on the same cable, i tried to swith master and slave for the drives, same result.
    I read that other people have installed osx with this MB.
    i unplugged all other devices and drives.
    Edit:
    * Disabled usb controller
    * Reset bios
    * Failesafe bios
    Any idea?
