Unable to boot from HDD alone / Where is Preboot.dmg

Recommended Posts

The installation works fine and I can boot from the USB installer but when booting from the HDD alone, I get still waiting for root device.

I figure that this happens because when you boot from the USB installer, it has the addition kexts included with the installer to make it very "generic"

Boot from HHD Alone: gets PCI config, stalls trying to find boot

Boot from USB and Select HDD: Got boot device, enter desktop

So where might I be able to find that data on the Mavericks image? Like where the Preboot.dmg was on the Mountain Lion image?

Thanks! :D
