So when i try to install iatkos v7 i get the "still waiting for root device error", i have an nforce 630i chipset and i read that is not compatible, what can i do? Someone told me about a custom boot cd, how can i do it?

 

Nforce 630i is fully compatible with Snow Leopard http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=219837

 

I have two PC with this chipset.

 

What hardware Have you?

Have you set up your BIOS correctly for OS X.........see here.......... ;)

thats another problem for me, i don't have all these features in the BIOS, i didn't even found the option to change to AHCI:|

 

The template is a composite of different nForce 630i BIOSs...........so, in your BIOS, you will not have every parameter shown in the template........are your DVDRW and HDD SATA or PATA (IDE)?

DVDRW and HDD SATA:)

 

You could try with a IDE DVDRW set as Master........

problem is, i do not own a Mac (i wish i did) and i do not own a 8gb usb drive (yeah....), so what should i do with that guide:(?

 

See if you can install Leopard from another distro first (e.g. iPC 10.5.6 Final, or XxX 10.5.6 Final 2 etc.)..........see my blog Leopard install guides........and post #2 here..........

srry for triple post but i'm desperate, when i enter in disk utility (in the installer) there ain't my hdd! There are only 2 usb drives plugged in:(

 

Two things to check:

 

[1] SATA/PATA BIOS settings

 

[2] Partition Map scheme/format type

well, the hdd is partinioned in NTFS format, and the sata/pata settings, where do i find that in the bios? There are only a few things about the hdd (something called nvidia raid and there is nothing interesting there, and other things like SATA master and slave and the hdd is set on master...)

Check out my Pre-Series 7 nForce chipset thread......it has a BIOS settings template in post #1 that you can download.... :)

dude, 95% of those options are not present in my BIOS :P, i really think that i should change that SATA mode that is set on RAID, it's greyed out how can i change that?

 

 

P.S. i noticed that, if i make any changes to HDD SMART capability (the default it's Auto), i mean if i change it to Enabled or Disabled the installer won't even boot, i get the still waiting for root device error, so i need to change it back to Auto...

 

 

how the hell can i unlock the bios? The motherboard is acer mcp73pv

 

Somebody help me please!

Acer Aspire M3640

 

On some BIOS to set AHCI mode, the SATA controller has to be enabled, and the RAID mode enabled too but the individual SATA RAID channels disabled.........since I do not have your specific BIOS manual, I cannot say if this is true of your BIOS........
