As far as I know, VPC 2007 doesn't support (officially or unofficially) the Mac OS X, you need to use VMWare. As far as it only showing a few hundred K, there are actually 2 partitions on the DVD a small boot partition for darwin then the OS X boot partition. The PC boots from the generic Darwin and then passes the rest of the boot to the OS X boot procedure.


Waiting for root device usually means that it can't find your SATA controller or your PATA controller. Find you vendor ID and Device ID in windows and see if they are supported by searching this forum. There are a couple of instances where there are issues if you have DOS/Legacy USB support enabled in the BIOS. Also if you are using SATA, make sure that it is not set for RAID.
