"still waiting for root device" fixed with kext, feels a bit wonky

Recommended Posts



As the title says; I got the "still waiting..." error when booting with -v; booting with -x (safe mode) worked; I installed a kext (AHCI_Extended_Injector.kext) because someone in another topic said it fixes this. It worked, though I can see some errors when booting with -v. 


The system runs smoothly, except for the CD drive which seems to check for CDs at random (not very often) and sometimes things are a bit sluggish; for example when I resize the browser window, it's very jerky.


Is there another kext that might work better? Am I frying my system running hackintosh like this?
