OS X Lion 10.7.3 boot problem

    Why does my Lion 10.7.3 boot fail at "still waiting for a root device" ? :frown:

    Thank you, this happens after I installed and updated iTune yesterday. Now the boot process stops while the OS is being loaded and I am so confused.
    [edit]I am installing it on my VMware by the way

    Are there multiple "hard drives" in this environment? If so, it's possible that the logical drive number was changed. When booting on a real system instead of via VMWare, the logical drive numbers are assigned in the BIOS, and can be changed by changing device and/or boot order of the hard drives.
