Default Hackintosh suddenly won't boot! - 03-28-2010, 09:07 PM


I've been running 10v with SL 10.6 (NBI 0.8.3 RC3) for 6 months without
a problem. Today I was using the VGA out, and had a USB wireless keyboard and mouse attached... closed the lid... and now my system won't reboot.

I get the boot screen (apple graphic), but after less than 1 minute the
system just shuts down. I've tried booting in safe, verbose, force... no dice.

I tried rebooting off my original USB boot key (with SL on it), and it loaded
once but wouldn't let me run Netbookinstaller.

Now the USB boot key won't work at all (stalls on Apple graphic)

Would love "understandable" advice (I can follow instructions but I'm not
an expert by any means). It would be great to get this working again...
but at the very least looking to get files off the HD.

Help... thanks!
