HP Envy 1190eo , Still waiting for root device

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,


After a lot of hussle making a ##### flash drive on a virtual machine, I tried to install ML ( downloaded from AppStore ) on my HP Envy 15 1190eo ( i7 720qm, ati mobility radeon 5830 ).


First I had a problem which I passed using the "cpus=1 busratio=12". Then I had a problem with my usb.



USBF: x.xx AppleUSBEHCI[0xffffff80063a8000]: unable to get filterInterruptEventSource

USBF: x.xx AppleUSBEHCI[0xffffff80063a8000]::UIMInitialize - Error occurred (0xe00002be)


Which I solved using "-x" flag.


I tried using USBBusFix=True, GraphicsEnabler=No, npci=0x3000, but same problem:


Still waiting for root device



I checked my bios settings, no ACPI settings, and also I only have 2 USB ports which I think are 3.0


LE: I checked in Windows and it seems I have ACPI enabled, if it matters (Under Device Manager it says "ACPI x64-based PC"


Could this be because my 2 partitions are used by Windows? I dont plan to keep Windows, but need a working Operating System.


Also, my laptop has no DVD-RW, and my Apple Superdrive is not working on this laptop ( heard it's limited only to original Apple pc's ).

I have 2 Hard Drives , with a total of 6 partions. the Main drive is 500 g with windows 8 on the first. I have ML 10.8.3 on 3 partions for safety. one is pure no apps loaded.

I installed with iAtkos ML 8.2 and bootloader.

I did noticed a few times I had to reset the bois after running windows 8


you could try UseKernelCache=no
