iATKOS S3 v2 "Still waiting for root device"

Recommended Posts

Hey guys!

 

So I've been running into a problem when trying to boot up into iATKOS S3 v2 (See my system specs in my sig) using the ISO Image I burned onto a DVD. But I keep getting "Still waiting for root device" I even tried booting up using "-v rd=disk0", still no luck. Any idea how to fix this? Probably something to do with AppleNForceATA kext?

 

Thanks! :D

I think, you must enable ACHI mode on bios

 

My bios doesn't have that option :/ I pretty much tried every flag and bios setting, even turning off firewire.

This works (also nForce):

 

 

 

I've had a hard time getting past that ''Still waiting for root device''. It seems to be a problem with some AMD chipsets, specifically the 7xx. Almost all the OSX distros I used resulted in the same message.

 

After a lot of time spent getting past that message, I finally bumped into something on the internet. A boot CD called Hack OS X boot, made by a brazilian OSX86 team for use with AMD (and Atom). All you have to do is burn it on a disk and boot into it. You will end up at a bootloader. This is where you swap your Hack OS X boot cd with a Snow Leopard retail (or something like iAtkos, but I don't recommend that as it might produce another problem, namely: getting stuck at PCI configuration begin). Now press F5 to refresh the bootloader and boot the Snow Leopard retail disk.

 

Here the (direct) link to the Bootcd: hackosx.com.br.

 

Good luck!
