Hi guys, hope some can help me recover data from my Dell mini 10v 1011 which was working well on Mac OS X 10.6 Snow*Leopard until 3 hrs ago. As I was linking my iPad and it kept asking me to upgrade ITune- I happen to update this and by mistake must have also accepted to update some on OS! As u may see I didn't know all the complications of this.
Now after restarting it keeps coming to a screen which has numerous letters/numbers and displays a message box in the centre which reads "you must restart ur computer.Hold down the Power button until it turns off etc....." in 5 languages including Chinese!
can anyone please help me in saving data on this netbook!!!!?.?

Updated iTunes to 10.5 but first did a TimeMachineBackup- help! - 11-03-2011, 05:24 AM
I just updated iTunes to 10.5 and I also got the endless reboot. I first ran the Netboot Installer- then did the iTunes Update- then ran the Netboot Installer and restarted!
I did run a Time Machine Backup- so how do I resort to the Time Machine Backup and get away from the endless reboot?

I updated my 10.6.7 10v to 10.6.8 and got into a reboot loop. After a lot of fiddling I have fixed it, and here's what I did.
On another machine, get hold of nawcom's 10.6.8 legacy kernel, and stick it on a USB stick.
When the /|/ spinner appears in the top left, after the DELL BIOS screen, press and hold SHIFT until the Chameleon boot loader comes up.
this will get you into single user mode
Plug in the USB stick
Type these commands
/sbin/mount -uw /
/sbin/mount_msdos /dev/disk1s1 /Volumes/usb
sudo mv /mach_kernel /mach_kernel_bad
sudo mv /usb/legacy_kernel /mach_kernel
sudo chown root:wheel /mach_kernel
disk1s1 is just what my USB stick happened to be. To find out what yours is, type
once when the USB stick is not plugged in, and again when it is, and look at the difference
After typing in those commands reboot, and press SHIFT again to get to Chameleon
This time boot with just -s
Once in single user mode, type:
sudo kextcache -system-caches
sudo kextcache -system-mkext
