    AMD Cool 'n' Quiet

    Hello, Is there a way to get AMD Cool 'n' Quiet/auto downclocking working on an OS X Mavericks hackintosh? This is because I do not want my Hackintosh to drain electricity by running at its max clock speed all of the time. I am running a M5A78L-M LX3 motherboard, with an AMD Phenom II X4. Many thanks

    AMD Processors - nForce 630a without AHCI

    Wow, thank you very much for that write up, I appreciate it! Does this work with Mountain Lion?
  3. I tried it too, didn't work for me either
  4. With my issue, I found that if I either disabled the onboard SATA controller, or even disconnected all the SATA devices from the motherboard, it still wouldn't work, with the same "Still waiting for root device" error, so I'm beginning to think that my problem may be less to do with the storage side of things. I understand that you're on a laptop, so that makes it even more difficult to diagnose I wish there was just some way to completely bypass the error
  5. I'm having the exact same issue with an AMD machine. I'm on the same boat as you

    AMD Processors - nForce 630a without AHCI

    Sorry for the late response to my thread, just began trying to get it working again! I tried disabling the SATA on the motherboard, and still ran into the same "Still Waiting for Root Device" error, so this leads me to believe that something else is causing the error. Could someone confirm what this actually means?: Waiting on <dict ID="0"><key>IOProviderClass</key><string ID="1">IOResources</string> etc etc. com.apple.AppleFSCompressionTypeDataless kmod start com.apple.AppleFSCompressionTypeZlib kmod start com.apple.AppleFSCompressionTypeDataless load succeeded com.apple.AppleFSCompressionTypeZlib load succeeded Could this be causing the error? Thanks!

    Okay, I will try that. Thanks for your help.

    Still can't manage to get it working, just stuck on: com.apple.AppleFSCompressionTypeDataless kmod start com.apple.AppleFSCompressionTypeZlib kmod start com.apple.AppleFSCompressionTypeDataless load succeeded com.appple.AppleFSCompressionTypeZlib load succeeded Still waiting for a root device The USB drive which I installed OS X on worked on another machine (with an AMD chipset), but cannot get it to run on my nForce machine. I guess I'll be purchasing a new motherboard soon in that case.

    I'm going to try this now Thank you so much for your support, I highly appreciate it.

    It's strange because when I use a 64-bit NForce ATA kext, before it gets to "Still Waiting For Root Device", the hard drive and optical drive start (can see via the HDD LED indicator and the optical drive spin sound), but still doesn't work. If I don't use the kext, there is no disk activity etc. It says: IOATAController device blocking bus

    Where can I obtain it from? (I apologise for the incomplexity of my questions!) From what I've seen (correct me if I'm wrong), they all show machines that have Mac OS X installed. I can't even get to the installer.

    Is IntelAHCISata a kext?

    AMD Processors - nForce 630a without AHCI

    Hello, I have a motherboard (ASUS M4N68TM_LE_V2) which has the nForce 630a chipset (for AMD processors). As is the theme with nForce chipset motherboards, there is no option to select AHCI, only the default IDE mode or RAID, as seen in the following image: http://i.imgur.com/hsoGtdo.jpg I know that RAID implies AHCI, however, no matter if I am in the default or RAID mode, I still can't get to the Mac OS X Mountain Lion Installer, due to the "Still waiting for root device error". This image shows the error that I see: http://i.imgur.com/xY1qe0r.jpg The boot flags which I use are: -x -v npci=0x3000 (I use npci=0x3000 in order to get around the [PCI Configuration Begin] error) No matter if I run it using -x or not, it still won't work. I have tried 5/6 different nForce ATA kexts, to no avail, and tried Verdant's Support Pack, which didn't seem work for me either. What would you suggest? What do you think is the problem? Also to note, I have Mac OS X Mountain Lion on a USB drive, using Andy Vandjick's 10.8.2 AMD kernel. I am using Chameleon the bootloader. Thank you.
  14. I have tried it in both IDE and RAID mode with the nForce driver (in Verdant's support pack), and all I get is: Found 0 units. Still waiting for root device
