  1. Thanks, I will hit you up when I get my new drive in. It's enroute.
  2. oh cool, so from the desktop, just launch the retail disk and install it onto the new drive? will that allow me to update without any issues?
  3. yeah i was planning on doing an [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] install, from the methods i've been researching.
  4. Thanks, I'm all good now. It's booting up fine, it was definitely a problem with the 10.6.6 install itself. No windows, no macdrive. I'm going to get my new drive going with a fresh install, transfer stuff over, and do a clone thing for the future. i'm not going to upgrade this comp past snow leopard anyway and i feel we're hitting the end of it here, also.
  5. I'm likely going to do a fresh install on the new drive using whatever method is recommended around here, and then copy what i need over and then use the existing drive as the clone.
  6. ok, so even with the permissions errors, that doesn't matter?
  7. I actually don't care if mine goes to sleep. It's used as a studio workstation, so going to sleep bonks up pro tools anyway. I just want to know what else I can do to clean up the install now that I'm functional again. Thanks!
  8. going to try repairing permissions now... OHHH YES. Verifying/repairing permissions did it! I did that, rebooted, and during the apple logo/wheel it rebooted once on it's own, and then went through everything again and loaded back up all the way. I'm back on the desktop! I'm ordering a 2nd drive now to clone. Thank you to EVERYONE who posted. Big help. Ok, so now that I"m here and it's reading 10.6.6, do I need to do anything to just insure everything is working ok? When I verify permissions it still gives me several errors... Warning SUID file ... has been modified and will not be repaired, Permissions Differ, and User Differs. It did shut down cleanly. I will hit any more repairs you all advise me to do tomorrow afternoon.
  9. Thanks. I will check the System directory. EFI sounds familiar. How do I access that partition? Thank you so much for your help. I'm definitely going to look into something like Carbon Copy so I can clone the HDD to prevent stuff like this from happening in the future, or to give me an easier access to fix it.
  10. so the directory is there, i just can't see it?
  11. ok i will try that. thanks. nevermind i'm an idiot... give me a few minutes. ok when i'm in terminal and i'm typing the code, as follows rm -r /Volumes/Mac\Pro/Extra/Extensions/sleepenabler.kext I get no such file or directory. any thoughts? i've tried to navigate to the dir, and i can't seem to get past the install name, which i have as "Mac Pro" i've tried "/Mac_Pro/" "/Mac Pro/" "/Mac\Pro/" "MacPro" and nothing so I"m pretty sure getting the path right is my tripping block here. SO CLOSE. ok so i was finally able to navigate there manually and there is no extensions DIR when I ls in "extra" I have the following DSDT.aml Themes smbios.plist Extensions.mkext com.apple.Boot.plist
  12. i tried booting from the CD in the bios/startup. sorry, i'm competent with computers, and i can follow install guides well, but troubleshooting this is pushing my limits. i basically followed the lifehacker guide exactly, and it's been working great, but i'm not that familiar with the details of the processes i used. thanks
  13. i'm having trouble booting from the retail disk. any advice?
  14. I'm not sure where it was, but I will try that anyway. Thanks for the tips. Had a long workday, and am a bit bleary so I will give this a try in the morning and post how it goes. Thanks so much!
  15. Thanks, I understand everything except that last instruction with touch. What is that for? And yes, I used a retail disk for the install.
