HP DV7-1299EF Installation + Still waiting for root device

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello guys,


I'm trying to install OSx on an HP Pavilion DV7-1299EF but I'm stuck in the Still Waiting for root device loop, I have tried several boot options

  1. -v -x
  2. -v -f
  3. rd=disk0s1 -v
  4. same as above but with disc0s2, disc1s1, disc1s2, disc2s1, disc2s2


However I couldn't find any way to out the SATA controller to AHCI in the BIOS.


I was able to boot with iDeneb 1.3, but I couldn't do that using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and Mac retail DVD..


here you can find all the information regarding my computer, it's the output of CPU-Z


Any help to boot the retail DVD 1.6.3 using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]?
