My Dell with OSX was running fine until tonight. After trying several times to get the Touchpad Drivers to work without success, I followed the tip at the end of the Touchpad thread and tried to reinstall DellEFI 1.1. After doing so, however, the Dell will not boot back into OSX. Rather, it gets stuck at the grey screen with the Apple logo and spinning wheel. I tried alternate boot methods (e.g. -v -f) to no avail.
The only thing I can think of is that I forgot to uninstall all of the Touchpad drivers before doing the DellEFI reinstall -- including leaving the plst file in the LaunchAgents folder. Could this be what is preventing me from booting up? If not, an ideas on hot to get going again without having to completely reinstall OSX?
Finally, if the problem WAS caused by my forgetting to uninstall the Touchpad drivers first, can I still do so? I suppose I could gain access to Terminal by using the OSX install disk. If so, would the normal Touchpad removal instructions still apply given that I would not be logged in as root (or that's my guess)?
Sorry for so many questions, but I'm just trying to be complete here.
Thanks in advance.
