After using Migration Assistant, OS X won't load. - 12-03-2010, 05:30 AM
I used Migration Assistant to move some things from the Mini 9 to a Mac. Upon reboot, the Dell won't load OS X. It gets past POST and the Dell splash screen but then only shows a blinking cursor in the upper left.
Same exact (and unresolved, it seems) issue as here: min- 10v won't boot after Migration Assistant transfer
There's nothing plugged into any ports and BIOS hasn't been altered. The RunCore is recognized in BIOS.
This was with 10.6.4, which had been doing fine. I removed the RunCore SSD and re-ran NetbookInstaller 20100616212351 without choosing to add the system-specific DSDT .aml file but it didn't help. For better or worse I connected the RunCore again to a Mac and ran the 10.6.5 Combo on it, then NetbookInstaller 20100616212351 again, again without choosing to add the system-specific DSDT .aml file. Same result.
If I remove the SSD the Mini 9 acts as expected (shows some hardware info and reports no operating system found) and if I install the original SSD Ubuntu loads normally.
