ok so, im tryin to dual boot Leopard and Vista on an AMD pc and i have a SATA hard drive. :) I used Leo4all and it installed perfectly, but i cannot boot it. i get the "Still waiting for root device" error. Kyle(Qazster) said he had the same problem as me n everything, and he fixed it by changing his BIOS to IDE or maybe it was AHCI. i cant do that. the option for it just isnt ther. i dont know wut to do know but im NOT gonna:

Buy a mac

Get rid of Windows and just use Mac

or any other dumb option

Processor: Athlon 64 X2 3800+

Chipset: GeForce 6150SE nForce 430
