AMD with ASUS Mobo

Recommended Posts

Hy guys, please forgive me if I post in the wrong place, first time here. 


I finally got the time to try out Mavericks, I wanted to give it a shot since forever.

My system is:

AMD Phenom II X6 64 1100T

ASUS M4A88T-V EVO/USB3 with AMD 880G/SB710 chipset

ASUS nVidia GeForce GTX 550 Ti video card


I managed to install Niresh Mavericks with the amd64 boot flag. After restart I get the "Still waiting for root device" problem. I re-installed numerous times with different settings for the SATA, including the still waiting fix that was included in the installer, tried all the boot flags I could find, but still no luck. I understood that I need a driver (kext) for my southbridge/sata driver, but did not manage to find anything by simply google-ing. 


What else can I do? Where else can I find solutions?


Thank you!

I understand you've said you've tried all the boot flags you could find, but obviously you haven't said which ones (which you probably can't remember them all to be fair).

Have you tried -v USBBusFix=Yes
