Myhack USB installer, Still waiting for root device error..

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello all


Having trouble installing Mountain Lion using MYhack on an Acer Aspire S3-391.


Sata is set to AHCI


I have no options in Bios for the following:


ACPI as S3

LegacyUSB as ON

UEFI Boot to OFF


So no way of knowing the status of those...


I boot from USB flash, and it gets to the apple Logo, then after a bit stoppes spinning and a no entry symbol shows...


Tried both USB ports (both are 2.0), Tried UsbBootFix=yes, nothing happens


In all these cases If boot -v It boots for a while and then says 'still waiting for root device' and keeps repeating that..


I am using myhack becuase I want to keep the current windows 8 partion...


Please help if you can. Thanks
