"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 :(

Chipset SATA Controller is broken. im using a "FastTrack 376" PCI to SATA Controller.

 

I tried:

- Removed PCI to SATA card from PCI Slot (Power on without HDD)

- An IDE to SATA Converter

- Turned off onboard LAN & Audio

- Turned on/off onboard IDE & SATA controller, SATA IDE/AHCI/RAID mode

- Each case is tried one by one, Plus mixed all of this!

 

For each case that error printed: "Still wating for root device"

(Sorry for my bad English)

    • I get this message no matter what I do, I've tried changing my SMBIOS to a newer model to no avail. Anyone no how to get the second install boot to work?
    • This is my first time doing Hackintosh. I've several other machines running Mac using UniBeast and Multi beast. I wanted to try Hackintosh Vanilla. So far, no luck. I followed the Guide and MacPwn Mojave Guide. 
    • Hello! I wanted to install MacOS High Sierra, but the SSD does not appear in Disk Manager. I have a Samsung Pro 840 250GB. Is there a Driver for Intel Gigabit 82579LM Network LAN for MacOS High Sierra?
    • This is my very first post and have looked around the forums to my question but I wasn't able to find the exact specifics that I need. This is my very first windows/mac dual boot project. I chose to attempt high sierra and I hope I am posting in the correct area. High Sierra seemed to be the newest that is possibly more stable than Mojave so I chose that. I'm reaching out to the more advanced builders and experienced people. I'm currently running Win 10 as of now and bought a separate SSD to install a macOS on. Before I invest time and energy into this. I'm wanting to get the best recommendations on what OS I should choose , if my hardware will be up for the task and my best plan of attack. I'll be honest I'm not ready to bang my head on the keyboard for hours. I've been there and done that.  My hardware was some of the best at its time in 2011 and I'm not 100% confident it will work with a more up to date macOS I'm also concerned about drivers for my GPU.  All input is welcomed   Here are my current specs:   CPU
