Boot problem. -still waiting root devices- message

Recommended Posts

install program doesn't work.

just 'still waiting root devices' message.

according to error message on screen, I think it's a problem about EHCI or PS2 mouse, Keyboard.

 

But in VMWARE, It works well.

 

Kext (PS2, fakeSMC, RTL8111) is in the USB for install.

 

 

My PC's hardware components
CPU - i5 2500
MB - Emtek TP67B+
VGA - ATI 5670
 
I don't know much about Hackin.

I have ran into the exact same issue while installing 10.9. 10.8 worked like a breeze, yet 10.9 would give me the "waiting for root device"

What worked for me was simply unplugging the USB dongle and plugging it back into a different USB 2.0 slot. It started carrying on.
