Loading ...Solving this damn issue manually I can't exactly say what those Apple Devs thought by themselves when releasing this Graphics Update but the internet is full of articles where people tell this update f*cked their systems. Ok lets try some things...
- turn off your system
- turn on and hold the following keys to reset PRAM:
"command","option", "P" and "R" (means 'Apple-Key' and 'Alt-Key' and 'p' and 'r')
- your system will do the well known startup "boom" sound again and reset itself.
- hold the keys until you heard the "boom" sound three times
- let the system try to boot
- if everything is fine now: open your windows and shout "Thank you Alexander"
- if booting still fails shout whatever you feel like
- then do the following:
- in case you don't have a second partition with the full installation of Leopard on it, you can now ask yourself why you did not read this article before. Instead get your
Leopard DVD at hand and rebootyour system holding the "ALT" key and choose to boot from DVD. Those of you who yet have a second partition and followed the guide mentioned above do the same but choose the second partition to boot.
- click thru all the messy questions and
- start the "
Disk Utility" then
- choose your harddrive where the screwed Leopard install is on
- and click "
Repair Disk Permissions"
- wait forever for this task to complete (in my case it took about 25 minutes, I first thought it hangs but it did not...)
- reboot your system
- you should be done now
