Still waiting forgot device when trying to install mac osx lion developer preview

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys


I really need your help urgently :S


I was following the guide of making Mac OSX Lion and was succesful in making the usb ready.


After that i prepared the bootloader ([url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] installer for windows) which works. But then after using many boot flags It always ends up saying "still waiting for root device" (This is before installing lion) which means i cant even start the installer.


I am in dismay and really want to install as i have been trying since 5 days with different solutions and i have limited bios options and cant really change sata to ahci etc... And the install image is working fine cause i tried it on my friends pc.


Im pretty sure my hardware is compatible cuse i have leopard installed already. Pleaase Help ME I have been trying to hard.



My System Specs are:


Hp DV6-3140se

Intel core i5

Ati Mobility Raedeon HD

Bios version F.23 Insyde

Have you tried installing [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] from [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]. It was this that fixed that same error msg for me although our hardware specs are different.

This error is frustrating, though I also dont have AHCI (ICH7), I was able to install Lion on A PATA HDD using latest chameleon and updates extra lion.pkg following a guide on this forum.
