Default Only boot with -x -f.. - 08-15-2009, 11:19 AM

First of all I'm a Mac Noob.

3 weeks ago i've installed OSX on my mini9 on dual boot with Win7. Everything worked fine and I was very happy with OSX.

Last Monday (i think) I've installed Safari 4.0.3 (on my updated 10.5.8) and after that shutdown the computer.

In the next day OSX wont boot.. Tried with -x and worked. Reinstalled DellEFI but no go. After 3 reinstalls on DellEFI OSX wont boot on normal neither safe mode.

Tried to reinstall OSX but The installation wont past the Apple logo. Tried with -x -f on boot and it worked. But now I can only boot OSX with -x -f because on normal boot it hangs on Apple screen.

Win7 on dual boot works fine.

Any ideas of what should I do?

Tks in advance and sorry for my english (I'm from Portugal).
