Aaaggh! - Ideneb killed my hackintosh

Hi folks,

 

I had my Dell Dimension 5150 working great with Kalyway 10.5.6.

Recently decided to upgrade to 10.5.7 as software I want to use requires is.

 

I used the IDeneb 10.5.7 updater and it seemed to install fine but now won't boot.

It comes up with the Dell splash screen and just keeps looping.

 

If I interrupt and boot with flag -v, etc, it gets to the Apple logo and then sticks.

 

Anyone know if I can get my system back without doing a complete reinstall?

 

 

Thanks folks,

Robert.

Hello dear Wilse, do notw orry Please use -v -x in that darwin boot.

 

If you are loading darwin boot after installation than you can make sure frist keyboard setup. If keyboard setup will to go step again than you should to turn your laptop or computer and restart again to darwin boot -s than you should to get fix problem with crazy keyboard setup.

 

If darwin boot loader is loading ready.

 

/sbin/fsck -fy

/sbin/mount -uw /

passwd root

retry your currect password (what do you like this?)

touch /var/db/AppleSetupDone

reboot

 

Than you can use -v -x to display screen...

 

If you see after keyboard setup to your apple login ...

 

Finish can you log in and load to Mac OS X Desktop.

 

Enjoy! Do not worry . If you have problems... than you retry sure.. Do not make panic.. Best regards, SNakeDriver

Wilse. I'm going to be honest, I don't know if you can get your system back. But. In case you have to resort to a reinstall. Just use the fix I posted. It's on the same Leopard forum you posted this in. You'll find it. You can run your apps without having to do Software Update.

 

Cheers,

Krishna

Entering "-v -x" at boot prompt looks as though it's about to load (lots of scrolling text) but then just loops back to the beginning.

 

If you are loading darwin boot after installation than you can make sure frist keyboard setup. If keyboard setup will to go step again than you should to turn your laptop or computer and restart again to darwin boot -s than you should to get fix problem with crazy keyboard setup.

 

"-s" also says "loading Darwin.." but then just sends it into a loop back to the beginning.

 

I can only get into Terminal from the old Kalyway 10.5.1 boot DVD.
