Uhh... This is kinda embarrasing but I was trying to update to 10.5.3 and I installed the first package and I accidentally pressed Restart. Now my machine dosent boot. It gets stuck at the apple logo and spinning gear thing.

 

When i boot with -v the last line i see relates to iTunesPhoneDriver what could this be?

 

Help??

 

Anyone?

 

Now I'm desperate. I'm willing to pay a reasonable price for the solution to my problem.

hi,

boot with cd press F8 to input boot options

boot with -s

mount your drive with

/sbin/mount -uw /dev/disk0s1 /Volumes/ (as example) tab show you your reasons

chroot /Volumes

rm -R /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelCPUPowerManagment.kext

nano /System/InstallAtStartup/scripts/1

 

seek for kextload /System/Library/Extensions/Don't Steal Mac OS X.kext

and change to kextload /System/Library/Extensions/dsmos.kext

 

save the file and reboot

Ralf, your solution may work but I need you to tell me something. When I type /sbin/mount -uw /dev/disk0s1 /Volumes/ it says:

 

/dev/disk0s1 on /Volumes: Specified device does not match mounted device. And I'm sure it disk0s1. what's wrong and how do I fix it.

 

EDIT: Now it says:

mount: unknown special file or file system /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD

 

and I swear its HFS+ / Mac OS Extended (Journaled)

 

what do you mean seek? and how do i save?

If it won't mount your hard drive, the only other thing I would suggest is booting from the install disk (kalyway, leo4all, etc), and opening a terminal and then trying to get to the file that way.

 

By "seek" he means "find", just go down through the file until you get to that line.

 

What update did you use? Kalyway's hacked update or the Apple combo?

boot from Install disk an use diskutil to repair your Drive. (there you could also get the correct devicename) its possible that disk0s1 is wrong in your case

then do the things i discribed above.

When you get the "/dev/disk0s1 on /Volumes: Specified device does not match mounted device." error you have missed the slash after Volumes

"/sbin/mount -uw /dev/disk0s1 /Volumes/" and not "/sbin/mount -uw /dev/disk0s1 /Volumes "

No, I can get into the drive through Ubuntu except I don't now what to do.....

 

Disk Utility says that the device is mounted at /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD

 

I also don't understand what you're trying to tell me to do. Am I supposed to find for that line of text and replace it? If so, how do I do it in Terminal

 

I can access the file from the Ubuntu Live CD by using

sudo nautilus '/media/Macintosh HD/System/InstallAtStartup'

Can't I just delete InstallAtStartup?

it might be disk1s1 oe sumthin along those lines if you have any of the leopard disk and check in disk utilty it should tell you what it is.

Do any Ubuntu users know how to mount hfs+ drives to write in Ubuntu? I cant write even if I use Nautilus.

 

Oh, and I can't find the line you told me to find.... This is my "1" file:

 

#!/bin/bash

export DYLD_NO_FIX_PREBINDING=TRUE

/usr/libexec/oah/translate -installOAH

touch "/System/Library/Extensions"
update_dyld_shared_cache

touch "/System/InstallAtStartup/.InstallAtStartupRestartAgain"

exit 0

 

If anyone still has a solution, post it here. Thanks!
