I tend to agree here; but yeah, I'm just trying to figure this out since there's so many posts with ppl mucking their systems while updating.

Here's where I am so far: 10.6.3 --- >10.6.7 via software update. Gets stuck on gray screen. But no kernel panic. System will boot using "recovery=y"; with no keyboard or trackpad function.

Tried the command line hack (as in post nine). But for some reason that give me an error, and will not run NBI. I started from scratch on this one, so not sure what happened with the USB when I re-prepped it, since running NBI from the command line worked fine before.

Next up I'll try with my original hack-- maybe later tonight.

10v, N80, 1 Gig ram, 160 Gig HD, A06 /Windows XP / SL 10.6.6 NBI 0.8.4 Special/ Linux Mint |
