I have been using dual boot now since the begining and have never seen this. I am using 10.4.6 with WindowsXP dual boot and everything was fine in OSX last night but I had to boot into windows for some applications that only run in windows and when I booted back into OSX it locked up and in verbose mode is said Waiting for root Device and would not boot anymore. But if I reboot with -s and -v it shows everything loading fine in safe mode. Anyone have any ideas what could cause this and how I can fix it without reloading?

I tried that fix and was not able to boot still. I am including pictures now to see if they help if anyone else has seen this before.

the next error that would pop up after that is "waiting for root device"

OK.. I have really come to the conclusion that 10.4.6 is gonna be unuseable for my with my VIA Chipset using SATA. I reloaded my install again and (I have to install with JaS disk in VMware because the IOUSBFamilly.kext Times out and does not load) it did the same thing again. I have no problems with earlier versions. In 10.4.4 or 10.4.5 their was not problems. I believe my best was Ver 10.4.3 but wish I could have latest and greatest. I dont know how Maxxuss did it but his patches always worked no prob. I may stick with 10.4.3 for now unless anyone knows of a possible fix for this. Anyone else having these problems with VIA Chipset? Anyone know if their is a kext in the 10.4.6 that could possibly be causing this to happen? Please help. Anyone that can help me please help.. :D
