Cannot find root file system booting Meego in Eee PC 900

First off, Meego 1.0 does not support Eee PC 900 as the processor does not support SSSE3. This is documented in the website. But that should not stop you from running it using LiveUSB.

And so that's what I did. Downloaded the IMG file and copied it over into the USB using Univeral-USB-Installer. With all high hopes of being able to play around Meego, I was greeted with this message instead:
-------------------------------------- WARNING: Cannot find root file system! -------------------------------------- Create symlink /dev/root and then exit this shell to continue the boot sequence bash: cannot set terminal process group (-1): Inappropriate ioctl for device bash: no job control in this shell bash-4.0#:
Of course, I am not RTFM :(...

This link shows the instructions on how to use .IMG file and write it to a USB. And it got more useful information as well.

Is there any solution for that problem yet? (Got the same problem with my Thinkpad)

Which one are you referring to? The warning or the fact that it does not support processors without SSSE3 capability?
