UIMInitialize Error.

When running a Chamelon patched SL installer which is bootable from an external USB Hard Drive it stops at the apple sign with a no entry sign, so I go into verbose mode and find the following errors:


USBF: 4.437 AppleUSBEHCI[0xffffff800541e000]::UIMInitialize - could not get chip to halt within 100ms

USBF: 4.439 AppleUSBEHCI[0xffffff800541e000]::UIMInitialize - error occurred (0xe00002c9)

USBF: 4.555 AppleUSBEHCI[0xffffff800541e000]::UIMFinalize - could not get chip to halt within 100ms

USBF: 4.556 AppleUSBEHCI[0xffffff800541e000]::start unable to initialize UIM

Still waiting for root device.


How do I fix this?
