Default Help - Dellmini 9 OSX 10.5.7 - 10-20-2009, 07:38 PM

I searched mutiple forums and have yet to find a fix for my problem. I was having some issues with the bluetooth so I decided to download the newest DELLEFI. Upon searching I found out that DELLEFI had been replaced by Netbookinstaller. I accidently downloaded the NetbookBootMaker 0.8.2 Final instead and ran it against my current Mac OSX partion instead of putting it on a USB stick. Now when I boot up I receive a kernel error. I am able to boot into "safe boot" by holding the "shift key", but I am unable to resolve the problem. Everytime I boot normally I get the panic error which tells me to reboot. I tried repairing the permissions using the disk utility but that didnt help. I am on vacation so I dont have the original Mac DVD with me. If some can help me to resolve the problem it would be much appreciated.

I did finally get things back up and running. I reran the DellEFI 1.2 alpha 5 from safe boot and was able to get back to where I was previously. I still am unable to turn off the bluetooth
