The problem is "Still Waiting for root device"

What shall I do to install it. Is SATA HDD Compatible?

Pl. help me out. Its a latest config. system. Do I need some patches for my HDD or Motherboard. I m trying it for the last 2 weeks.

Motherboard : Intel Frostburg DG33FB

Effective Clock :1333 MHz

RAM : Clock 400 MHz DDR2 SDRAM

HDD: Hitachi HDS721616PLA380

I had the same problem.

What i did was to change my HDD. (i had a backup one)

Hey Kiwi, dude you're on AMD Ath,on so I thought that you can just help me out. I downloaded that Kalway DVD of Leopard for my system. The sys config are :-

 

AMD Athlon 4400+ X2

Jetway JM2A-692-GDG Mobo with ATI x1250 onboard graphics with SM 2.0 and SB 600 Southbridge,

WD 250 GB SATA II HDD w. 16 MB Buffer,

Sony DRU 835-A DVD Writer and 19" Viewsonic 1912w TFT w 1440*900 @ 75 Hz.

 

Now, when I try to install Leopard on my system I get an error Cannont Copy files to the Partition from /Volumes/System (I think so). Then it asks me to restart the system. I've tried installing a number of times but I get the same error again & agai. What could be the matter? I've formatted my HDD as 30 GB Mac with FAT32 for Leopard and the HDD is set to run in AHCI mode with SATA enabled thorugh BIOS. Please help!!

Update:-

 

I got it installed on my system. But the problem is that after the sucessful installation I don't see any Mac bootloader, the partition table is

/dev/sda1 - Windows Xp

/dev/sda2 - Leopard

/dev/sda5 - Shared

/dev/sda6 - OpenSUSE 10.3

/dev/sda7 - Ubuntu

/dev/sda8 - swap

/dev/sda9 - Music & Movies

 

Please help, it staright away boots into OpenSUSE's bootloader, I even tried to add Mac OS X by editing the menu.lst file in OpenSUSE and adding the entry of Leopard via the chainloader option. but all in vain, it says, HFS+ partition error. What should I do, the data is safe and intact. I formatted the partition as HFS+ Journled and it is a primary partition.

 

Assuming u're a linux user u should already know that in order to boot any linux u need to specify where ur kernel is located ... i've an iATKOS Leopard 10.5.4 running and it boots from a 200Mb ext3 Partition with only grub installed :D ... i use a bin file named boot_v8(i think it's kalyway's) and with only the line in my grub: kernel (grub partition)/boot/boot_v8 it will send u to leopards bootloader ... i also had a kalyway 10.5.1 working the same way ... i'm a linux user and a spanish one so my knowledge about mac is poor as well as my english :( ... hope it help though it's been a while since anybody post here ...
