    Hello,

    i have Mountain Lion 10.8.1 installed on my Acer Aspire 5755g, however when the operating system tries to load i get a still waiting for root device error. Nevertheless, it will boot perfectly into safe mode. Any solutions?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    others have had the same problem, including me. I have to boot with UseKernelCache=No, or -f. Alternatively, I can use IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector, but for some reason that makes my optical drive disappear.
