nForce3 M/B has always "Waiting for Root Device"

I have successfully installed Zephyroth 10.5.2 rev.2 Leopard, but first I had to chang the AppleVIAATA.kext and AppleNForceATA.kext with the ones from Tiger and during the install I choose the VIA chipset and not the nForce as it is my M/B (nForce3).


Everything seems to work fine but I when I try to launch Toast Platinum 8 or 9 the program stops responding and I have to force quit from it. I have tried to change the AppleVIAATA.kext with a modified one with my device ID but during the boot I get a "Still Waiting for root Device". The result I have if I try to change the AppleVIAATA.kext with AppleNForceATA.kext is the same and I always repair the permissions.


Will the new kext work with my M/B or is it the same as the one contained on Zephyroth 10.5.2 Rev.2 iso? My M/B is MSI NEO Platinum with nFORCE3 chipset and my HD's are sata and DVD is IDE.
