"Still waiting for root device"....


I have been trying to boot the Yosemite Zone installer and I cannot get it to pass "Still waiting for boot device". I have tried USBBusFix=Yes, USBLegacyOff=Yes, booting with the Haswell kernel (4690K), I tried Zenith432's GenericUSBXHCI.kext with Clover using WithKexts and it still doesn't work It does seem to hang up a bit before that after it loads VoodooUSBMouse. I'm probably doing something wrong I suppose? I'm using a flash drive with the Yosemite Zone .dmg that I wrote on it with TransMac. I did verify the .dmg's MD5 just in case, and it does match with the one on the download page. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.  :rolleyes:

@ Sorry for the late response. Still no success with this flag, does the exact same thing. Here's some more system info in case that helps:


Intel Core i5-4690k

Asus Z97M-Plus


Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Ti (might be causing some issues? Maxwell...)



Thanks for the help.




EDIT: Installer has not been modified.
