After i change boot132 cd with leopard cd it is loading kexts etc and then just "still waiting for root device". Leopard version is 10.5.6.

I have installed Kalyway 10.5.2 without any problems i cant figure out whats with that retail.I think i have used every kind of bios setting without any results. Maybe my boot132 is just wrong or the hardware. Any suggestions ?


PS. If anyone with same pc spec. could send me screenshots of his bios settings and boot loader it would be great.


My pc specifications:

Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3R (rev 1.0)

Intel Core 2 Duo E6620

GeForce 8800GTS 320Mb

2x1GB DDR2@800MHz Patriot

0,5Tb Segate SATAII Barracuda

are you pointing to a uuid for the root drive or diskXsY?

if diskXsY , are you pointing to the dvd drives 3rd partition? eg. (disk2s3)



... also how does your motheboard suppost ide (via a sata/pata controller)? if so you might need to set it to achi. (you might need to double check that one, not 100% sure on it)
