Hi Guys

I really need your help urgently :S

I was following the guide of making Mac OSX Lion and was succesful in making the usb ready.

After that i prepared the bootloader (##### installer for windows) which works. But then after using many boot flags It always ends up saying "still waiting for root device" (This is before installing lion) which means i cant even start the installer.

I am in dismay and really want to install as i have been trying since 5 days with different solutions and i have limited bios options and cant really change sata to ahci etc... And the install image is working fine cause i tried it on my friends pc.

Im pretty sure my hardware is compatible cuse i have leopard installed already. Pleaase Help ME I have been trying to hard.


My System Specs are:

Hp DV6-3140se
Intel core i5
Ati Mobility Raedeon HD
Bios version F.23 Insyde

BTW ASK FOR ANY OTHER INFO

Have you tried installing ##### from #####. It was this that fixed that same error msg for me although our hardware specs are different.

This error is frustrating, though I also dont have AHCI (ICH7), I was able to install Lion on A PATA HDD using latest chameleon and updates extra lion.pkg following a guide on this forum.
