Hey all.

So I installed 10.7.4 on my HDD through a Macbook 2009, installed Chameleon and the AMD kernel. Everything seems to load pretty quickly, but booting verbose shows that it gets stuck @ ''still waiting for root device''.

Not sure if it has anything to do with it, but at boot it also tells me that it failed to load the AppleFilesystemDriver.

Things I tried:
- Sata mode is set to AHCI in BIOS.
- Tried PCIRootUID=0, UseKernelCache=No, GraphicsEnabler=No. Though might have missed the golden combination!


What to do? Thanks in advance,

Robin :)

EDIT: Hardware:
AMD Phenom II X4 955BE
ASUS M4A77
6gb DDR2
ASUS GTX580 DCII

I figured out why it wasn't working for me. The kernel simply wouldn't work with 10.7.4, stick with 10.7.3. Also don't forget to install FakeSMC.

10.7.3 worked for me. ;)
