Still waiting for root device - OS X Yosemite Zone Hackintosh 10.10 - Hackintosh Zone Jump to content

Question

Hi! I'm new on this forum. I want to install Yosemite with USB pendrive. When I try to boot it with "/amd64 GraphicsEnabler=No npci=0x3000" I have to boot with "GraphicsEnabler=No npci=0x3000" because I had "PCI configuration begin" message. In few seconds there's a crossed circle. I tried to boot it in verbose. The last line is "Still waiting for root device". I tried to fix it by placing GenericUSBXHCI.kext or Niresh's Still Waiting for Root Device Fix, but nothing changed. I have to boot with "GraphicsEnabler=No npci=0x3000" because I had "PCI configuration begin" message.

 

My specs:

CPU: AMD FX-4300BE

GPU: Gigabyte HD 7770 OC

MOBO: ASRock N68C-GS FX

RAM: 1x4GB DDR3

Ethernet: Realtek RTL8211CL

Audio: Roland UA-1EX

 

I hope someone will help me :)

Thanks

@siralex90 Can you attach a verbose picture with

"/amd64  npci=0x3000 -v" at the point where you get stuck with still waiting for root device

Yes, I tried "USBBusFix=Yes" and others boot flags many times, and when I disable USB Legacy my USB pendrive isn't recognized.

Have a Samsung NP-R60 laptop trying to install Niresh Yosemite on it.

 

Laptop has Inel Core2Duo cpu and 500gb HDD and 2.5 gb of ram.

 

Just will not install hangs on different messages or if try to boot without -v does nothing.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks In Advance, Brad.

    • Saludos!   Tengo el mismo error (RAM a 667mhz), con una placa base ASUS (y mi cpu es el fx 6300).   Lograste solucionarlo?
    • Hi guys. Well, this is my second day of troubles, I touched everything, I installed max like 5 times in the same day, trying to figure out things and well. My Mac it display my graphic card on the #About this Mac tab With 2047MB ( So I guess all is right ) I installed the latest nvida drivers and on clover I activated the NvidaWeb. The problem is the resolution. Max resolution allowed is 1280 x 1024 and 800 x 600. I used to boot with nvd_drv 1 with nvd dry 0, I used to boot with all that things, and without them.  BUT No way to fix the resolution. Someone knows what-s going wrong and how can I fix it? Bdw im using iMac14,2 and OS X Sierra 10.12.3 Im connecting to the screen with DVI adapter. ( Maybe that causes the problem ) But it shows Im running 2047 MB so... idk why I can't change resolution. Thanks! ================================= SOLVED EDIT: Hi guys, in Display Resolution, I just set it in "Default for display" and after that pressing "THE WINDOWS BUTTON KEY, IN MY CASE, IDK WHAT KEY IS THAT IN MAC KEYBOARD, I THINK THE CONTROL ONE OR IDK" PRESSING that key I selected Scaled, and it appears more options and resolutions. There is a video on youtube about that called "Mac OS X Display Resolution" If someone has the same trouble.
