Still waiting for root device ERROR

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 ? @

    • Hi guys, I installed the Hackintosh Sierra Zone image and most things work except my graphics. It detects as AMD R9 290X when I use FakeID 0x67B01002 on boot, however I only get 7MB of VRAM with no QE. My screen also tears as well. Hope someone can help me - Intel Core i5 2500K - AMD R9 290X 4GB - ASUS P8Z77-V LX
    • Hey guys, I'm looking into dual booting OSX Sierra or High Sierra on my ASUS Zenbook Pro UX501V. I use a lot of mac only software like sketch at uni and it would make my life a lot easier to just be able to boot into it instead of going to campus to use one of their Mac's. I'm currently running windows 10 and would prefer to not have to lose all my files or reinstall windows 10, however if this is unavoidable I would consider it. Specs are Processor    Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700HQ CPU @ 2.60GHz, 2592 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)
      GPU    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960m 4gb DDR5
      RAM    12GB DDR4
      BIOS Version/Date    American Megatrends Inc. N501VW.300, 9/05/2016
      BIOS Mode    UEFI Does anyone know of any guides? Or has done this before? Even a link to point me on my way. Looked into the clover bootloader and I'm under the impression that's the route I'll have to take. Thanks for any help you may have
