No Boot Screen


The One And Only One

My Snow Leopard 10.6 installation failed at the very last part, the problem was some DSDT.pkg corrupted kind of a message, regardless, the installation booted up well and everything was working. The only problem is I don't have the Apple boot screen, the ones with spinning wheel. It's showing me the boot up screen just like verbose mode, any ideas to this?

whatever you did, you probably set the -v flag in the boot plist

 

to remove it, go to: library/preferences/system preferences/

 

and copy the file com.apple.boot.plist to your desktop

 

open in it in textedit and under the kernel flag entry you should find "-v", remove just that flag, save it and replace in the plist in in the original folder with the one from your desktop (you will need to enter your password)

 

reboot and you should see the normal boot screen

Can't find that specific directory :S

 

I can see /Library/Preferences but there is no System Preferences in there.
