So, the day has come that I'm asking you guys for help...


After trying to fix my sound problem and installing the macvidia driver for my GeForce 6000LE i rebooted my system. Now it says:


Failed to load extensions com.apple.driver.AppleVIAATA

Failed to load extensions com.apple.driver.AppleGenericPCATA


(in YELLOW, followed by:)


Couldn't alloc class "AppleVIAATARoot"

Couldn't alloc class "AppleGenericPCATARoot"





Driver auto reconnect to last 0ID_802_11_SSID setting - (6x)

Still waiting for root device.



Please help my, my OS was running so great until now and this error kinda frustrated my...


Btw: The HD is SATA, but I configured it and it worked fine until now.


Thanks in advance!

Ok, I think I know what the problem might be...


I also applied this little speed-up patch (http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=517) but obviously the new IOATAFamily.kext contains the AppleGenericPCATA.kext, and as my HD is SATA (configured in AppleVIAATA.kext) I'll have to copy this one into the IOATAFamily.kext/ and remove the PATA.


Only have I to download the Darwin Boot-CD, 'cause I can't boot from the 10.4.6. HOTISO either... :D


Hope this will fix the bug.
