Boot without using "cpus=1"

Question

Hi,

I finally have my hackintosh working but I can only boot with "cpus=1." If I don't, I get the dreaded "Still Waiting for Root Device" message. I have tried cpus=1, cpus=2... all the way up to cpus=8 but I still get the same problem.

System Specs:

  • AMD FX-8150 @ 4.0GHz
  • Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD5
  • 8gb DDR3 G-Skill Ripjaws X (Booting with "maxmem=6144")
  • 1tb Western Digital Green as OSX Drive
  • 60gb Corsair SSD for Windows
  • 2x 1tb in RAID 1 (Storage for Windows)
  • Sony Optiatc DVD-RW
  • nVidia GeForce 210 512mb (PNY)

Any help would be greatly appreciated as this is the final thing that needs done to complete my first hackintosh!

Ahh, in activity monitor it only shows one graph. If I double click the graph another window appears with 8 but no matter what I do only the top one shows any activity. If I run CPUx it shows 1 core with 8 threads where it should show 8 cores, 8 threads.

Core/Thread actually are the same thing...

Maybe you must run lot`s of apps at same time to see if there`s some activity on the others cores...

Just ran geekbench and it still only uses 1 core and gives a low score in the 3000s

You already have you Snow Leopard updated to the latest version and also Chameleon???

You have a newer processor and need newer system support...

Ahh, do I just need to wait for an updated kernel that supports my CPU?

No...

Update your Chameleon Using Chameleon Wizard, update Snow Leopard to 10.6.8 and before reboot install Legacy Kernel 10.6.8...

Check if everything is OK...
