I bought and installed the AR5B91 for my Lion Laptop. All was good on 10.7 but I updated to 10.7.3 and recieved the 'still waiting for root device' error. I removed the card and it booted fine. How can I get this working fine?

One error on boot I spotted just before still waiting for root device was PCI open failed.
Thanks.

Have you tried the flags pciroot=0 or pciroot=-1?

Thats exactly what I did. All updated to 10.7.4 now.

Not using a DSDT as I don't understand it or know how to make one.

That would be great. How do I dump it and what benefits will I get from having it?
