Do you ever see the image of a hard drive after the Dell screen disappears? If so, you can press the down arrow to get the menu and then *without choosing a menu option* just start typing "recovery=y" and then hit enter.

Default 99% fixed - 08-29-2011, 09:04 AM

Just booted the install disc and reinstalled. Applied all the updates and back up in running with fully updated 10.6.8. Only thing is....seems like every other reboot I get a kernel panic (if i immediately restart it boots fine) which is a bit of a pain but not the end of the world.

Yeah, that happens to me on occasion as well. I'd like to know why, but as you say it isn't a deal killer.

Default What am I doing wrong - 10.6.8 upgrade - 01-31-2012, 06:20 PM

I decided to upgrade to 10.6.8 on my 10V. I read everything so I was fully prepared but I still get the constant loop. This is what I did.

I can type recovery=y and that logs me into 10.6.8 but now what.

I opened a terminal window and typed
sudo mv /legacy_kernel-10.6.8 /mach_kernel

I hit enter and it asked for my password and I entered it.

Next I typed
sudo chown root:wheel /mach_kernel

I hit enter, no password required.

I closed the terminal window, restarted my machine and I still have a constant reboot. What am I doing wrong?

Was this resolved?? I have the same problem now
