Hi,

I have a HP Pavilion DV7-4035es (i5 450M, ATI HD 5650M (which doesn't work)) and i installed ML using the retail disk with some modifications. Well, I got almost everything to work, and updated to 10.8.1 without any effort. Then, I updated to 10.8.2 and got some errors, but i got it to fix them easily.
Then, I felt so excited that i updated to 10.8.3 following the same procedure as with the previous versions (saving my kexts and then changing some things). Unfortunately, I spent hours trying to get past the "Still waiting for root device" message. After I did, I got stuck at "No interval found for . using 80000" and if I wait around 5-10 minutes it displays "Resetting IOCatalogue"; after this, it freezes. What do you guys think would be the problem?

Thanks for taking your time reading my problem.

Try to update Chameleon and add the -f flag, or UseKernelCache=No, or even boot in safe mode using -x.

Good luck!

I've already done that. In fact, everytime i'm booting, i use -v -f -x, and no luck :/. I've been able to reach singe user mode, but i don't know if i can do anything useful there to solve my problem. Any suggestions?

Did you update via the Combo Update, downloaded from the Apple site? Or did you update using the App Store?

I used the combo update.

I got to solve it by re-installing the combo update, connecting the HDD to my desktop pc (which is running 10.6.8). I also changed some kexts and installed the lapic fix kernel.
I'm gonna try the boot flags you told me and report to the ship as soon as posible :thumbsup_anim: .

isn't -f different than UseKernelCache=No? I thought -f was mostly for Snow Leopard. Also did you try both npci=0x2000 and npci=0x3000? I know that fixes this error for some people. Also do you have an option to choose ahci or ide in your bios? If you have a patched AppleRTC, the update could have reset your bios settings back to IDE or something.

Here's my suggestion...

You could compare the S/L/E folder of 2 different update packages in the terminal, or a backup if you have one, using this: diff ExtensionsFolderofUpdate1 ExtensionsFolderofUpdate1
here's an example comparing my MBP's drive with my Hackintosh's drive:
Diff /Volumes/Momentus\ XT/System/Library/Extensions /Volumes/Hackintosh\ HD/System/Library/Extensions
You will probably see some things like this:
Common subdirectories: /Volumes/Momentus XT/System/Library/Extensions/EAP-TLS.ppp and /Volumes/Hackintosh HD/System/Library/Extensions/EAP-TLS.ppp
Only in /Volumes/Hackintosh HD/System/Library/Extensions: EPSONUSBPrintClass.kext
Only in /Volumes/Hackintosh HD/System/Library/Extensions: FakeSMC.kext
You can also use -R to search all the subdirectories of each kext, also try man diff which will give you other options.

I don't know how accurate that would be but it may give you a lead and then you could just roll back some kexts if you need to... it's probably a kext related to the hard drives.

I hope that helps a little bit.
