Hello guys
My Mountain Lion start doing restart loops, i can't even read the log with -v because the restart is so fast.
Now i boot with backuo disk and trying to analyse my main disk.
How can i check the log files? can't find any log files in disk

Thanks

put this code on Terminal app , and see in the your Desktop your log, or use DarwinDump for this.


sudo dmesg > ~/Desktop/boot.text

Since it sounds like you may be having trouble booting OSX to do the options above, they are physically located in /var/log and /var/log/asl/
