    Still Waiting for Root Device

    You need to do more searching. Have you tried the Boot CD from here? http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=227592

    Search for a boot CD with SATA controller kexts for your MB http://www.google.com.au/search?hl=en&...0l241l241l2-1l1

    Link works for me. anyway you CAN search yourself http://tinyurl.com/5ujpvzu or you could look it up in the MB Manual to see what the controllers are. If you only have those two drives connected then I would assume that the HD is Volume 0 and the DVD is Volume 1.

    Yes at this stage you are trying to boot the DVD install disc from the DVD drive. So what drives have you got & what ports are they connected to? Do you know what controllers the ports run (use "system Info App" in Windows)

    ? USB DVD?

    I thought I had explained, changing ports etc. As ifrit05 said try searching. One thing to try is boot with "rd=diskX" or "rd=diskXs3" Where X is the DVD drive number.

    I thought [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] was for intel CPU's - so you are going to need a Boot CD for AMD. Getting a IDE (ATA) Hard Drive is not going to help at this stage as the error is with the DVD drive. Try changing the port if it is a SATA. DVD or making it master if it is a ATA DVD. You may have to find a boot CD that has drivers for the DVD controller. Run 'System Info App' to ascertain what controllers your board has. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=219584 BTW since you downloaded your copy of OS X retail, it could be faulty, although I would expect an EBIOS error in that case.

    What Apple installs. You might want to upgrade to 10.6.7, it included updated GMA 950 Drivers. And as far as I know the drivers are only 32 bit.

    intel GMA 950 problem

    Why would you re-install just to add graphics enabler to the boot.plist http://www.google.com.au/search?hl=en&...0l373l373l3-1l1 There are a few ways to get the GMA 950 working DSDT patch (my preference) USE VANILLA (un-patched) KEXTS OR adding EFI Strings USE VANILLA (un-patched) KEXTS OR Enabler via Chameleon (via com.apple.Boot.plist) or Enabler kext. OR patched kexts. Suggest you read the links from this search http://www.google.com.au/search?q=site:ins...206&bih=888

    Try booting with "GraphicsEnabler=Yes" at Chameleon prompt. I f that works add <key>GraphicsEnabler</key> <string>Yes</string> to "com.appleBoot.plist" The best way for GMA 950 is a simple DSDT fix. See my guide #post 4 What is the ID of that GMA 950
