I manage to run successfully iPC live disc. It's all fine.

But when i install the iPC, and restart it stuck at the "still waiting for root device" error

i boot with -v -f -x but still the same.


Here's what i chose when i install

- iPC OSx86 10.5.6 Base System

- Language (Japanese, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese)

- Drivers

(Legacy Time Machine Fix)

(Video - Nvinject 0.2.1 768MB VRam)

(Chipset Drivers - Intel ICHx SATA Drivers and Intel ICH10 SATA Support)

(USB Drivers - (I select all)

(Fixes and Patches - (I select all except SATA Driver Icon Fix (Old and New)

(AppleSMBIOS Patch - AppleSMBIOS-27 Rev3 800MHz)

(Applications - (I select all except "Marvin's AMD Utility)


Do i need to chose DSDT Patches? (If yes can pls point me out which one)




Here's is my PC Spec

Dell XPS 420

Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550

Razer Barracuda AC-1 Gaming SoundCard


4GB DDR2 Ram


I got 4HD and (SATA 1 and 2= 500, SATA 3 = DVD ROOM, SATA 4=320GB, SATA 5=250GB (Which OSx86 will be install). I disable speed steep and all SATA drive (except dvd room and install HD) in setup.


Any Help will be appreciated
