What do I do?!
If I try the S3 dvd this is what happens:
So after a lot of effort I was able to install Mac OSX Snow Leopard on my machine. It ran just fine and I was really happy with it. Without giving it a second thought, I installed the update to .8. This was a HUGE mistake. Now the drive won't boot up at all. It just stays at the Apple logo.
This would be a problem if it really mattered I didn't have any special files on there so it is OK to reinstall it. Which is what I immediately try to do. But it doesn't work. It gives me tons of errors, and if I can FINALLY get it to the grayish screen with the cursor it crashes before the language select screen can show up. I have tried several boot flags. I have tried like EVERY combination of these:
Before the language screen pops up, I get the loading cursor for about one minute. Then it goes to normal cursor. After ~30 secs it goes back to After two minutes or so the computer shuts down. I never even see a trace of the language screen.
I am not doing anything different than before... I cannot figure out what the problem is.
