"Still wating for root device"

Try: ahcidisk=1, cpus=1, npci=0x2000 

Quicktip: You cannot combine flags like -v & -x like this: -vx as you stated earlier.

I tried:

amd -v -x ahcidisk=1, cpus=1, npci=0x2000

and:

amd -v -x, ahcidisk=1, cpus=1, npci=0x2000

Result is same to past ("Still wating for root device") for both :(
