A client recently installed Snow Leopard on his Intel iMac, and now is getting the "no sign" on startup. The computer boots in Safe Mode. Booting in Single User mode results in "still waiting for root device" over and over and over. Apple Hardware Test results in no errors, as does Disk Utility's Verify Disk.

The real pain is that the problem is intermittent. I thought I fixed it, then it appeared again, then disappeared. Could this be hardware related? This seems unlikely, since Safe Boot ALWAYS works, but I'm moving the machine around during this, and I though that might be the cause of the intermittence...

Arg!

Help?
