Hi all,


I am trying to install Mac with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] + Retail DVD method,


On chameleon prompt, when I directly click on Mac Install DVD, Apple logo comes and later a STOP sign appears. But when I use flags, for safe mode, I am getting Still waiting for root device error. [have set SATA to AHCI]


I have tried following flags, in vain :(


-v -f

-v -x

-v busratio=12 PCIRootUID=1

-v -x busratio=12 PCIRootUID=1


Laptop config :

Dell XPS L501x

i7 740

GT 435m
