Default 10.5.6 Boot Up Problem - 03-11-2009, 08:56 PM

I was wondering if anyone else has this problem and knows a solution or knows whats wrong with my dell mini 9. Sometimes when i turn on my dell mini 9 it freezes at the Apple Logo screen with no spinning ring. If i restart the mini it boots usually. Sometimes it takes 2 reboots to boot up. I installed the Combo Update and the Dell efi already.

I get the same sometimes, no idea why. Tends to stick on a blue screen for me.

It rarely happens but when it does it takes quite a few boots to solve. Last time it lost my wallpaper setting too oddly?

You're not alone. I think I get the Apple screen without the spinning logo after I let the machine fall asleep (cover open). I hold down the power button, and then sometimes I get that problem trying to restart. A second time seems to always work. I'm guessing it has something to to with improper shutdown in my case, but don't know about yours.

just out of curiosity what SSD drive are you using ? maybe it can be pin pointed to that ... it sounds like the drive is not given a ready state to the bios and its waiting.... you might want to reinstall the dellefi again too....
I have been using a runcore 32gb and its been flawless , even in sleep mode.
