Stuck at Apple Logo/ Still waiting for root device

Recommended Posts

I tried to install Niresh’s OS X 10.8.2 with the EasyBCD method on my PC, But everytime I try i stuck at the Apple logo and a stop-sign appears or if I use amd -v I get sill waiting for root device.

It’s the same with amd -v GraphicsEnabler=Yes -v debug=8 ahcidisk=1 -v.


PC Specs:

AMD Athlon X4 630

Gigabyte M720-US3

Power Color Readon HD5550

But how to put extensions in? Do I have to unpack and then repack the ISO?

I tried it with: amd -f -v UseKernelCache=No -v debug=8 ahcidisk=1 -v and amd -v debug=8 ahcidisk=1

.Everytime it’s the same "sill waiting for root device". But I’m confused about your file, what should you do with it?

Or is it better to install OS X on a USB drive?

At the moment my graphics card in my PC is broken so I tried to install it on my Laptop (Toshiba C660D). I boot with amd_kernel npci=0x3000 PCIRootUID=0 GraphicsEnabler=No. The installer says that the installer couldn't start OS X from the disk.

At the restart I boot with "Kernel Cache"\amd_kernel npci=0x3000 PCIRootUID=0 GraphicsEnabler=No. The Laptop reboots after some time.
