Waiting for root device can be caused by many problems.


Try this

When you see the Darwin Bootloader, press F8

Then highlight the OSX partition or drive with the up-down arrows.(you do not need to do this if there is one drive/partition).


Then at the boot: prompt, type "rd=diskXsY -v"

without the quotes and replace X with the disk number and Y with partition number.


You can find the X and Y values in the list after pressing F8 above.

It will be shown as something similar to




For the above image you will be typing "rd=disk0s2 -v" without the quotes and press the Enter key.

You should now move one step closer to a hackintosh.

Tellme what happens next.
