Dell 640m / 10.4.9 - Bootscreen gone

I did a quick search on this topic, but I didn't find anything. After upgrading from 10.4.8 - worked like a charm, thanks to Ahmad Moawya - the grey screen with the Apple logo doesn't show up anymore when starting OS X. Instead I see all that written stuff documenting the booting process. Same thing when shutting down. This is indeed a minor problem, but I would like to fix it, so it looks like a normal OS X again...


I used the JaS Iso of 10.4.8 and upgraded to 10.4.9. Besides of that I didn't fiddle a lot within the system. Just activating the Sigmatel 9200 sound and the broadcom 440 Ethernet. It's a dual boot with XP.


Any Idea?

Try add this to your boot.plist


"<key>Boot Graphics</key>"



you have to goto applications - utilities - terminal.


then type 'sudo nano /library/preferences/systemconfiguration/com.apple.boot.plist'


hope it works

That's already in there. The whole file looks like this:


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
