I was trying to make my FireWire working and followed one of advises here on the board to remove AppleHPET.kext to make it work. It caused Kernel Panic on boot, so I've put it back where it belongs S/L/E. But ever since then a strange phenomenon I observe. In safe mode (-x) it boots, then after a reboot it boots flawlessly (pretty long time though), BUT ONLY ONCE! Try rebooting again and you get the same Kernel Panic about HPET. Can anyone tell me how it's possible? I know that I sound like a green newbie and pretty much I am referred to Hack. And theoretically I could live with booting the system in safe mode and then again normally, but it takes 15 minutes! It's not something you look forward to when turning your comp on!
I'm being too emotional 'cause of three sleepless nights. But anyway, I would really appreciate any help, fellows!
