E6420 Sierra Waiting for Root Device


Recommended Posts

I followed the guide from here: https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/9383-dell-e6220-i7-2620m-clover-detailed-guide/


My E6420 is the HD 3000, i7 2620m, 900p screen version.


I can not for the life of me get past the dreaded still waiting for root device. I have made sure all my bios settings match the ones that are linked in the guide to no effect. 


I'm using a OS X Yosemite VM in VMWare workstation 12 on Windows 10 but that shouldn't matter too much, should it? 


I have tried boot flags such as -v -x, -v -x -s, those kind of things.

I know its the latest, whatever was in 2016, just updated it a month or so ago unrelated to this. Maybe I could try taking the trac pad driver out for now, to see if thats the problem.


Edit: This is what I have before the garbled text after removing the tracpad kext.
