Processor: AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ (Windsor)

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-MA74GM-S2

Chipset: ATI

Memory: DDR2 2.0gb (1gb x 2)

Graphics: PNY Verto NVIDIA GeForce 6600 256mb PCI-Express

Hard Drive: WDC WD2500JS-23MHB0 (SATA)

DVD/CD: NEC DVD_RW ND-3550A

 

 

I've tried using a couple distro's of osx86 (Leo4Allv4.1, iDenebv1.3 with and w/o nForce Patch) and I cannot even get to the menu screens to start installing the OS on my hard drive. I currently am running windows XP and have an unused 30 gig partition (FAT32, which will be reformatted when i can get to the install screens) so I can install osx86 on it. My goal is to try and dual boot with windows xp.

Every time I boot off the DVD i get the dreaded "Still waiting for root device" messege.

Here is what I see using Leo4Allv4.1:

any help would be greatly appreciated... i'm still new to the osx86 scene

ATI chipset is a bad choice. That's why You don't see root device. Next time try any intel chipset.(change motherboard)
