Hi there,



I have been trying to run my hackintosh without my iBoot disc, but no success.



I followed the instructions and installed Multibeast successfully. (Easy without and with user DSDT file; which I tried to correct).



However, the startup hangs when not starting from the iBoot disc with the message: "Still waiting for root device". (this doesn't happen when booting from iBoot disc).

How can I make it boot from the HDD without iBoot?



Can anyone please assist?



Many thanks upfront and best regards



Xelus



Find enclosed the output from iboot (boot.txt) as well as some other files.

PS: I have some other issues. I finally found a driver for my Atheros Wifi card which is recognized; however AirPort can't turn it on (it is turned off). Also my App Store is not working ("an unknown error has occured") - but this I guess that I can make work in a second step. Strangly my built in touchpad and keyboard are not always working - however, I can attach an external keyboard and mouse that works well.
