Default Problem with Update (Kind Newbish) - 02-16-2010, 11:59 PM

Hi, First i Have a Dell Mini 9 and until yesterday I had 10.6.2 working fine...

Updated to the mostly recent updates and the machine now will not reboot advising that the hibernation image is too old and to force wake the machine...

I have several questions firstly How can I restore my Hackintosh from my Time Machine backup on an external Harddrive

Second How can force boot into safe mode

and third how can I deal with the force wake issue if it occurs in the future

The Hackintosh is done with the Net Book installer method if that helps, it has a 16 GB SSD and the Maximum Ram it will take

Thanks for your Assistance

1) Used NBI how? Do you have the NetbookCD or a NBM installation image on a USB drive? To restore from TM backup you need to boot the installation disk. Once your in that it's the standard TM restore.

1. Be sure the computer is shut down.
2. Press the power button.
3. Immediately after you hear the startup tone, hold the Shift key. The
Shift key should be held as soon as possible after the startup tone but not
4. Release the Shift key when you see the gray Apple icon and the
progress indicator (looks like a spinning gear).
5. "-x" and return at the boot prompt.

3) No clue. Myself I disabled hibernate to avoid all the issues around it.
