Sporadic "still waiting for boot device" with 10.5.2 update and 8800gt

Any advice would be appreciated...


I've updated my Kalyway 10.5.1 using the Netkas method, applied the graphics update, then installed my EVGA 8800GT.


Now, I get sporadic "still waiting for boot device". It happens with no rhyme or reason that I can figure out--It will boot correctly or not; in safe/single user mode or not. When it boots correctly, System Profiler shows the generic NVidia ID from nvinject with CI/QE enabled. I did not make any changes to the system when I installed the card, just plopped it in, suffered through a couple more boot device messages, then it booted up, albeit sporadic. Everything else seems to work (except the usual won't shutdown/sleep/restart crud).


I'd like to get this stabilized.


My rig specs are in my sig. Thanks.
