E5420 El Capitan Installer doesn't boot

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,


This is my first hackintosh attempt, and indeed my first post in this forum. You lot seem to be quite helpful, and I figured I'd turn here.

I have an E5420, with the 2.5ghz i5, 4gb of ram, and the 1600x900 screen. It has a broadcom wireless card in it already.


After the significant screwups on my part prior to getting this all functional to the point it is now, I am faced with an irritating issue of the screen glitching out and through the glitched text, reading "Still waiting for root device"

Right before that, it reads [iOBluetoothFamily][searchForTransportEventTimeOutHandler] -- Missing Bluetooth Controller Transport! 


It then slowly scrolls down in empty new lines every 2 or 3 minutes. I apologize if this is indeed similar to another issue on here, but those resolutions don't help. Booting with cpus=1, -x, GraphicsEnabler=No, or without caches does nothing to help the issue. Any suggestions? 


Thank you,
