Can't boot into OSX86 after install

Hi there everyone, any and all help will be greatly appreciated.


I installed the OSX86 on my Dell Inspiron 5100 but when I tried to boot, it would not get past the grey apple logo screen. So I loaded it using -v to see what it was stuck at. It showed "Still looking for root device" quite a few times and it would not go past it. What could I do to make it work?

During the installation, right before clicking the Install button, you must click the Customize button and install packages for your computer. Click the little arrow to the left of the patches category to reveal the individual packages. Select Intel packages, not AMD. Select SSE2 or SSE3, not both, depending upon the capability of your processor.
