After 10.5.8 Update, Wont boot - 09-25-2009, 08:05 PM
I just installed OS X using the netbook installer .82. I then tried to install the combo update to 10.5.8. The installation of the update finished and said it was successful (although it hung on two minutes remaining for at least 12 minutes). So I reboot and get to the boot prompt, and type "-x" to boot into safemode. Apple screen appears and the turning dial, but then the computer reboots, and I try to go to safemode again and the apple screen appears, but no dial and it hangs for a long time. Should I wait longer? If i dont boot into safemode,i get the dial and the load up, but its just a blank screen with squigily lines.
Am I doing something wrong. I follwed all the steps in the forum netbook installer method.
Thanks in advance.
