Still Waiting for Root Device

Ok so its simple. When i first tried to install Mac Os X natively, it gave me the "Still Waiting for Root device" error. I asked some help, and it was told me to use diferent distros. I tryed many of them and noone of them worked.


Then I started thinking and I started installing Mac Os X through VMware. (After a long battle) It worked!

I can run Mac Os X through VMware, it is installed on my hard drive so i decided to give it a go natively. I restarted my computer, and it boot from the hard drive, until it stopped, and started gaving me the "still waiting for root device" error again.


I did some research and I came to the conclusion that my mobo, Biostar P965 775, uses the intel p965 chipset. I installed Jmicron drivers, Installed ICH8 drivers, nothing works...


I am using IDE only, DVD on slave, HD on master. Everything is well setup.


So on my last attempt to get Mac os X running natively, I went here and made a search on the Hardware forum. I have seen this -->http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=34938&hl=p965<--- topic and thinked to myself: "This is IT!"


Now the question is, that explains how to do it for an installation cd... What do I Have to do AFTER it is installed?


Hope someone can help me on this one... Thanks...
