Default Problem with 10.6.0 post install - 07-03-2011, 10:39 PM

I've installed OS 10.6.0 using a retail upgrade disk directly to my 16GB runcore SSD from my Mac. It boots up fine and then I ran NBI xxx351. Then I shut it down and plug it into my Mini9 (A05 BIOS) and boot it up.

This is where the trouble is. The mini boots into OSX just fine...but I can't do anything once it's booted.

If I click anything - like try to go to the download folder to run NBI again - the screen starts acting odd. The dock and menu bar will disappear and reappear leaving just my background image. After a few seconds of this everything looks back to normal as if you first turned it on, but if I click something else the same events occur. Also, my trackpad doesn't work and I have to use a usb mouse.

How do I fix this?

Have you tried to repair disk permissions and resseting user password and permission using utilities from the installer disk?
