Still waiting for root device ERROR
1 1

Question

First of all thanks for helping me out if you do

 

I burnt the ISO of mavericks in a dual layer dvd and booted from there, if I use no flags my laptop restarts, and somebody told me to use -x -v GraphicsEnabler=Yes OR =No, if I use yes, then it restarts again, if I use No I get the message ' Still waiting for root device'

 

Do you have any suggestions of any flag that I could use or something??

 

Also i burnt the ISO of mountain lion on a normal dvd And I get an used the same flags that I mentioned before, but here I have another error, which is this: 

 

10253275_10203937202575129_1317949476_n.

 

and after a while it says the same 'Still waiting for root device' and the dvd stops spinning ...

 

Again, any suggestions ? thanks a lot in advantage for any piece of advice ! 

 

Here are my laptop specs:

 

intel i5 with hd3000 graphics, sandy bridge

4gb RAM

620gb HDD

 

the model is Samsung np-rv420

 

thanks a lot again !

Boot with -v -f -x

 

If it boots, goto <OSX HDD>Extra

 

Open file named org.Chameleon.Boot.plist

 

Copy its contents an paste here.

nothing yet, could not boot with those flags, neither trying those with GraphicsEnabler=yes or no ... Do you recommend trying with an usb drive ? @

@tanittoo

I gave a 2nd look at the pic, its not at "still waiting for root device" but "Bluetooth..."

 

Confusing.

in the image, that's the exact point where the dvd stops spinning, and after that it says 'still waiting for root device'.. it's both things at the same time , i don't know. And about the AHCI thing, yes ! thanks again
