SL Install Recovery

Hi guys,


I was running a Snow Leopard install successfully for over two years, and a couple weeks ago my internet stopped working. I thought it might have been a faulty PCI card, so I bought a Rosewill RNX-N150UBE USB adapter. I couldn't get that to work with drivers from here: http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=21&PFid=48&Level=5&Conn=4&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false&Downloads=true


Went back to put in the old PCI card (a Netgear Rangemax WPN311 PCI Adapter), and re-installed the kext which worked for me for over a year. Not sure if I did something wrong in that moment, as I haven't been able to get snow leopard to start up again. It just goes to a blank screen right after boot.


I burned i boot onto a CD and have tried variations of -x -s -f boot options, with no luck.


Attaching a cell phone shot of the verbose where it seems I'm getting the hang up.


Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Hmm, "Still Waiting for Root Device", that's a new one. Never heard that one before. If you google or forum search it, you probably won't find anything.


Your motherboard has a JMicron drive controller, what's the South Bridge?

Which controller is your OS X harddrive connected to?
