Installation: Still waiting for root device

Question

hiddehs    0

I am stuck in the installation of Yosemite 10.10.1 on a HP Elitebook 8560p, after booting into the Yosemite Zone installation.

After loading the voodooPS2 trackpad kext there comes a respons with "No interval found for . Using 800000", after a while the line "Still waiting for root device" shows up with no progress..

Used the site google.com but no specific fixxes for my specific installation fail.. is there anyone here with working bootflags or other fixxes for this problem?

Thank you in advance

I actually installed it but after it restarted, THEN I got this error. Please let me know if your problem is similar.

One note, I first tried with AHCI and never got past AHCI : No ECDT error. I switched to ATA and was then at least able to install, but on reboot same error as yours.

griftopia, I fixed this problem with replacing my USB stick to another one (I was using a Padlock, maybe it was eventually locking during the installation on that point)

Finished the installation with another 8gig drive, in my case the still waiting for root device error stands for problems with the install drive. I read somewhere about the same 'still waiting...' error with the Hackintosh drive, in your case the drive that is booting up and giving the error. It is a known problem around bios settings...Have you looked into your bios settings?

First you are almost correct! Didn't think it was USB related. I was using USB port in the back of my Lenovo ThinkCentre M81. I switched to port in front. Yup dee doo !!!

Now I see hardware acceleration is not working so I'm not getting widescreen video. I have Intel HD 2000 onboard. I thought this was supported. Need to do some work here. Thinking may be go for a cheap NVidia card. I will reply back progress when I get around to it.

Thanks very much for that suggestion. USB is flaky - what you use, which port you use. Beats me.

PS - One issue to solve for later - upgrading to 10.10.5 fries the install.

GeForce 210 is a cheap and ok card for hackintoshing. It's dirt cheap and its supported OOB. Just don't game with it.

You upgraded 10.10.5 through App Store? You're supposed to use this one. https://support.apple.com/kb/DL1832?locale=en_US 

Let me know if it works for you. Cheers.

    • Hey!  I successfully installed macOS Sierra with the Version SierraAMD v3 on my AMD Pc.  But after setting up the PostInstall via Terminal, the OS stops booting at this line : ioconsoleusers: gioscreenlockstate 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0 Any solutions?    My System Specs: Mainboard: Asrock 970 Pro3 r2.0 Processor: AMD FX-6300 Graphics: Sapphire Radeon RX460 4GB   Thanks!
    • Ok, so I built a new hackintosh with Niresh Mavericks 10.9.0 on a modified Dell Precision T7400 and mostly everything seems to be working correctly except for two things: Sound (The obvious one), and Online video content (Youtube, Facebook videos, etc) play at lower than 1 fps, frozen speed, after 10 seconds of playback it reaches 4 seconds of elapsed time and I have found no other forums explaining this or talking about this so I decided to bring it up here. As for the sound situation, I already bought a new card to replace the X-FI, so yes, I am aware of the Sound Blaster Audigy X-FI Xtreme Audio not being supported, but what caught my attention is that the sound was working and video playback problem was gone temporarily, I happened to hear the sound from my headphones sitting on my desk and put them on, and sound. I decided to test a video on youtube, the problem with the videos, gone. But after a reboot, they were back. However I have the logs from today and can give them to whoever wants/needs them to figure out what may have caused the sound to kick in on the X-FI and maybe add support for this sound card. I copied as far back in the time that the system was on while sound was working that I could up to the shutdown event. I know it's pretty large but I am not sure where to look, I am simply handing this out to whoever wants to see what may have given me audio on this card for the session. From what I can see that looked to be the most closely related to my issue is something to do with bluetooth (I don't have bluetooth, btw), it says in console: "9/20/17 6:49:55.785 PM com.apple.audio.DriverHelper[200]: The plug-in named BluetoothAudioPlugIn.driver requires extending the sandbox for the mach service named com.apple.bluetoothaudiod." repeatedly many times. This could be completely unrelated.   The only recent actions I made that I personally can think of that may have triggered this would be: I installed several different versions of a music player through Winebottler and it failed to start, more and likely because of the lack of .net framework 2.0 and 4.0, this is my highest suspicion of being the likeliest cause, but I could be wrong. I installed Crossover and installed the music player in it, which it ran in and is where I discovered that you need .net 2.0 and 4.0 (It had the player in it's database and installed .net automatically) Ran Discord (It uses output/input, so may as well add that in) The player was MusicBee, and when it crashed, it also left a log that I could probably try to reproduce if needed.   Specs: Dell Precision T7400, 1x Intel Xeon x5482 Nvidia Geforce GTX 660 16GB ddr2 ram 667mhz (Tested to be working correctly, please don't ask me to run a mem test I am impatient enough as it is)
