"Still waiting for root device"

YAY! My first post! LOL!


Well I'm running a:


AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+

2GB DDR2-400 533mhz

250GB Samsung SP2504C SATA II 300 7200rpm

nVidia GeForce 6150 LE (Integrated) 


I booted from the disk and got the error, "Still waiting for root device." and "IOUSBMassStorage Class" no kernel depedency. There are a lot of the SAM multimedia read/write errors,too.


JaS Hackintosh 10.4.8


Note: I looked at Device manager and didn't see the "SATA Controller" but when I opened SiSoft Sandra, it showed I had a SATA HDD.


Please help.

there are lots of sata problems, look at other threads. By the way, is your DVD drive sata? that could be a problem. In the bios setting sata mode to IDE or legacy will help. boot with parameters too.
