    Version v328


    AppleAHCIPort.kext v328 from High Sierra PB1_17A291m. Info.plist has been edited so Bundle version is 999.1.1 ---> give higher priority loading in kernel cache/pre-linked kernel than v329 from later betas/GM. Need to disable SIP (since editing info.plist invalidates Apple's kext signature). Install in /Library/Extensions (so doesn't get over-written during updates) repair permissions, rebuild caches eg sudo chown -R 0:0 /Library/Extensions/AppleAHCIPort.kext && sudo chmod -R 755 /Library/Extensions/AppleAHCIPort.kext sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions && sudo kextcache -u / Test kext is loadable... sudo kextutil -tn /Library/Extensions/AppleAHCIPort.kext Confirm kext is loaded after rebooting the system... kextstat | grep AHCIPort To use with a USB installer, the kext needs to be included in the prelinkedkernel. Use PLK.tool attached to post#13 to create a new prelinkedkernel with AppleAHCIPort.kext v328, then replace original prelinkedkernel in the installer - post#16.
  2. Hi guys, I tried to install a Hackintosh with High Sierra on my Laptop ACER Aspire V3 772G747a8G75M (Intel Core i7-4702MQ, Board VA73, bios Hyn, 1 SDD with Windows10, 1 HDD for data, onboard HD4600+nvidia 760M ==> attached file with full description). I followed several tutorials (https://www.aioboot.com/en/clover-boot-disk/, yours about 772G installation). All was good : creation of the USB Stick, downloading HighSierra image on my partition (partition HFS+ created HDD SATA in the second disk). No pb encounted during these steps : USB OK, recognized partition, 2 hours download but ok. But I'm struck during the final HighSierra setup in the partition : the boot on clover is ok, the OSX progress bar started and stops with a sign of prohibited direction. With verbose mode, i can see "still waiting for root device" (difficult to read because pixelized). Many search on forums related a USB issue but I don't understand since previous steps were ok (USB install, partition recognition and downloading). After many and many search and tries, no way, no boot 8-( I tried : - all the arguments (cpus=1 npci=x2000 -v -x -f UseKernelCache=No dart=0 nv_disable=1 USBBusFix=Yes busratio=25 PCIRootUID=0) and variation (PCIRootUID=1 and 2, npci=x3000) - starting with options, with kext, without kext - change usb2 location - add kext (I have these ones for the moment in the Other directory : ACPIBatteryManager.kext, AppleALC.kext, ApplePS2SmartTouchPad.kext, BCM5722D.kext, FakePCIID.kext, FakePCIID_Intel_HD_Graphics.kext, FakePCIID_Intel_HDMI_Audio.kext, FakePCIID_XHCIMux.kext, FakeSMC.kext, IntelGraphicsFixup.kext, IntelMausiEthernet.kext, Lilu.kext, NullCPUPowerManagement.kext, Shiki.kext, USB_Injector.kext, USBInjectAll.kext) - usbownership flag - Fake Id for ATI set to 0x12040000 Always the same string. Damned !!!! I need you guys. Any idea ? Is it because my partition is upon the HDD ans not the SSD ? because the partition is not set as active ? pb with kext version ?... In attached file : - technical config - config.plist - Clover's report (F4 key) - some harcopies to understand sysconfig.HTM config.plist preboot.log
  3. Ok, so... I'm running across this issue... I'm CURRENTLY running a 10.7.1 OS X Lion on this: Mobo: BioStar G31D-M7 [Latest BIOS Upgrade] Ram: 2GB Installed on single channel Mac OS X 10.7.1 installed on a SATA HDD [320GB] What's working: - Ethernet - Audio - Video - Youtube [via HTML5] - [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] I originally tried to upgrade from 10.7 to 10.7.5 but that was a COMPLETE disaster, as I was welcomed with "Still Waiting For Root Device" time after time after time So I baby-stepped it -- reinstalled Mac OS X 10.7 [due to a smart backup on another HDD that had 10.6.8 installed onto it] and tried to upgrade from 10.7.1 > 10.7.2... "Still Waiting For Root Device" I've seen the AHCI fix for this, but... I'm not exactly sure if that's compatible with my MOBO. Any chance that 10.7.1 will be the HIGHEST upgrade possible for this old machine???
  4. So i'm trying to install OSX 10.4 Tiger (patched for intel cpus) on a 9 year old laptop, so far i've burnt a DVD and tried to boot from it, when not starting with -v it loads and then a prohibited sign shows up, and when starting with -v it keeps saying "still waiting for root device", i've tried multipile fixes and none of them work, and im sure there isnt a problem with the computer as it also fails to boot on my core 2 duo machine, so is it possible one of you guys knows how to fix this? Thanks in advance!
  5. Hey guys! I have already got Snow Leopard 10.6.8 installed on my Desktop PC, and now I would like to install it on my laptop. Laptop data: Motherboard: Clevo M7X0SU Front Side Bus: Intel GTL+ (64 Bit) Chipset: Intel QM67 (afaik) CPU: Intel Pentium Dual CPU T3200 (2000 MHz) RAM: 4GB BIOS: Phoenix BIOS (from 10.02.2008) Graphics: NVidia GeForce 9300M GS SATA HD: FUJITSU MHZ2320BH G2 ATA Device (298 GB) Disk drive: MAT{censored}A DVD-RAM UJ870QJ ATA Device The laptops hard disk is connected over SATA and has three partitions: - On the first partition theres GRUB as bootloader and the Windows 7 partition (NTFS) - On the second theres the System Reserved partition for Windows 7 (NTFS) - On the third partiton theres Fedora installed (HFS+ i think) I am trying to boot with iB00t 3.2 and the retail Snow Leopard 10.6 disk. I want to remove Linux, format its partition and install Mac OSX instead of it. The problem is that it says Still waiting for root device when booting in verbose mode, so I think it does not detect my hard disk drive. AHCI Mode is on! Do you have any idea what I could do? Here i've uploaded screenshots of the BIOS, Chimera and what Darwin verbose mode tells me. When using a distribution like iAtkos L2 its exactly the same. Thank you in advance! Max
  6. Bonjour à tous ! J'essaie d'installer Mavericks 10.9.2 sur un Packard Bell AMD Athlon II 215 DualCore 64 bits 4 Go DDR3 DD Sata 80 Go et nvidia geforce 6150se nforce 430. J'ai créer la clé avec [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] et j'ai remplacé le kernel par un kernel patché AMD mach_rc7_10_9 et j'ai mis les kexts Verdant dans Extra et S/L/E mais impossible de booter, still waiting for root device.

  7. Salve a tutti, so che è un problema che è stato ampliamente trattato, ma nonostante abbia letto centinaia di guide e fatto altrettante prove, il mio IAKTOS L2 continua a bloccarsi su STILL WAITING FOR ROOT DEVICE. La mia motherboard è una asus p5n7a-vm e devo installare iaktos su un disco IDE , da un lettore dvd anch'esso IDE. Ho impostato l'hd come master e il lettore come SLAVE; riesco ad effettuare l'installazione senza problemi (da bios la sata mode è configurata come AHCI) , ma quando avvio il sistema operativo, si blocca inesorabilmente. Ho provato con il comando rd=disk0s1 , ma niente di niente. Quando ieri ho provato a installare IATKOS S3 V2 , che sulla mia vecchia mb funzionava, ho trovato lo stesso problema, ma con una variante: se facevo il boot da cdrom e selezionavo successivamente di partire dall'hd su cui era installato snow leopard, con il comando rd=disk0s1 ...il s.o. magicamente partiva. Non so piu come fare...come posso riuscire a far girare lion su questa scheda madre? Help....
  8. This Mountain Lion just won't boot up into Installion screen. I've gone through the "still waiting for root device" thread to no avail - nothing explained there - is of any help so far. That is why I deided to start a new thread as an Acer 8940G.

Also I cannot get 10.7.4 to work all Network is gone after installation BCM LAN and Atheros wireless nothing functions PLUS iCloud failure though I tried removing connections and Networkinterfaces plist nothing no registering possible, snow leopard flows like a smoothy though. I thank any of you for their time and advice!!!
  9. This topic is to gather all information about "still waiting for root device" in one place. Few days ago I wrote about running El Capitan on the Skylake rig http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/308576-success-el-capitan-build-15b30a-on-skylake-i7-6700-with-some-bugs/?p=2184344 I passed all information to Pike R. Alpha, so hope he and others find the solution for everybody: The most intresting thing is some bios option called "IOAPIC 24-119 Entries" which is enabled by default. You have to disable it to forget about "still waiting for root device" :-) Why this option is intresting ? it and the other 3 options are not avaible in the newest bios version. I've allready checked all versions and it is avaible in: 0701, 0801, 0902. The newest version 0907 is missing it: Dumping ACPI gives nothing - the tables look the same with and without that option enable. If someone want to look at it, here it is: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/40896256/Hackintosh/MB/Asus/Maximus%20VIII%20Gene/Archiwum.zip

Once started recognised correctly HDD. Also I tried with a new EVO860 nvme SSD , but I have the same problem. I dont know because sometimes yes sometimes no, the system stuck in this error I add some information files and logs. sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions && sudo kextcache -u / kext-dev-mode allowing invalid signature -67030 0xFFFFFFFFFFFEFA2A for kext HackrNVMeFamily-10_12_6.kext kext-dev-mode allowing invalid signature -67062 0xFFFFFFFFFFFEFA0A for kext FakeSMC.kext kext-dev-mode allowing invalid signature -67062 0xFFFFFFFFFFFEFA0A for kext BrcmPatchRAM2.kext kext-dev-mode allowing invalid signature -67062 0xFFFFFFFFFFFEFA0A for kext BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext thank you. Solution by Rehabman;Extracting my native/clean DSDT using Clover F4. and check with diff DSDT file.

  11. Hello Everyone, I am trying to install the Mac OS X Mountain Lion (Niresh Distro) 10.8.2 in my HP Probook 4540s but it gets stuck at "still waiting for root device". I tried various BIOS configurations and boot flags like debug=8, AHCIDisk=1, GraphicsEnabler=Yes/No, hp (this flag was provided in niresh's guide) and many others in different combinations but none seem to be working. Can anyone help me with this ? System : Intel® Core i5-3210M CPU @ 2.50GHz 4GB DDR3 RAM (Single Channel) 750 GB SATA HDD GFX-Intel HD Graphics 4000 @ 2 GB GFX- AMD Radeon 7650 @ 2 GB

    Still waiting for root device

    Boa noite. Não sou um membro novo, mas como esse é o meu primeiro post... ... Sei que esse é um erro comum, mas já tentei tudo que vi e até agora nada. ... Primeiro, vamos as minhas configurações de hardware: ASUS P5VD2-VM - BIOS atualizada Core 2 Duo 2.0 GHz 2GB de RAM GeForce 8500 GT 512MB Configuração mais específica está no arquivo anexo, gerado pelo CPU-Z O que eu fiz: Baixei o iATKOS L2 do torrent que tem no iatkos.me e gravei no dvd. Entrei na Bios e no Advanced > "Onboard (...)". Lá tem uma opção "JMicron (...)" que estava IDE, então eu coloquei AHCI. E no "SATA Controller Mode" só tem a opção IDE e RAID. Deixei como IDE Dei o boot com o dvd do iATKOS, apertei F8 e digitei a flag "-v" mas, depois, acaba dando "Still waiting for root device" Reiniciei e troquei o SATA Controller Mode para RAID, mas continuou dando a mesma coisa. Fui na BIOS, de novo, deixei ela tudo como default ("Load Default(...)"), mas continua do mesmo jeito. Alterei novamente, após colocar como default, o controller mode e o JMicron, mas nada de diferente. Já tentei as flags rd:disk0s2, npci=0x2000 e 0x3000, arch=i386, busratio=20, -v, -x, -f, (mesmo não sabendo se eram esses argumentos que eu deveria colocar) e ainda assim, a mensagem continua aparecendo Só tenho um hd, conectado, que é o que está o Windows. Eu vou instalar o MacOS "por cima". Provavelmente, eu vou ter que formatar para fat32, para o utilitário de disco reconhecer e poder formatar para o sistema de arquivos utilizado pelo MacOS (não é?). Mas primeiro, quero chegar até essa parte que eu formataria o disco. Depois eu formato, caso seja necessário Bem, sou iniciante nessa área de hackintosh, por isso gostaria da ajuda dos colegas do fórum PC.html
  13. Ciao a tutti! Ho deciso di provare ad installare Snow Leopard Hazard 10.6.2. Durante l'installazione nessun problema, ma al reboot parte il chamelon e il caricamento si blocca sul logo della Apple. Provando ad avviare con -v -x spunta: "Still waiting for root device". Sul mio pc ho due hard disk, dove in uno non è installato nessun so, e nell'altro solo Snow Leopard senza altre partizioni. I componenti del mio pc sono: Scheda Madre: Asus P5K SE-EPU CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo Scheda Video: Ati Rdeon 3600 Ram 4Gb Scheda Rete: Zyxel G-302 V3 Assieme a Snow Leopard ho installato: Chamelon RC3 PCEFI, ATY_Init, Vodoo HDA, AtherosFix e AHCI_SATA Fix (ho provato anche non selezionandolo, ma il problema persiste). Cosa posso fare per risolvere?
