Hi. I just got my Dell 9300 running with everyting except the Intell 2200 card (I was close). I have to say, it's pretty cool and I couldn't have done it without information found on these forums. I'm glad they exist, thanks.
So I go to the update software section and get the 6 updates that were available. i don't know what they were exactly. One was Java 5 update, and the other's seemed benign but they would be whatever the default downloads for a fresh 10.4.8 install would be. After updating, my puter keeps restarting right after "Loading Darwin/x86" is displayed. If I hold F8 I can get the boot menu. I select -v but it reboots before I can get any of the info. Even -s fails to get me to a prompt.
I know I should have checked here to determine what updates are safe, I will in the future. For now I'm most interested in determining what broke and was wondering if there was a way I could boot to see what when wrong. I don't care if I have to reinstall, I've done that 5 times today already. I'm just curious on how to figure out what been broken and see if I could save the installation.
THanks in advance.
