Preventing Automatic Reboot After Installation


1 post in this topic

I'm following a tutorial for installing the ToH version of 10.5, and it says that you shouldn't reboot after installation. Instead, it suggests attempting this...


4. Follow the on screen instructions until installation completes, but don't reboot yet! There is a good chance you'll end up with a blinking cursor. Open a terminal under the "Utilities" Menu and type :

#/usr/misc/script.sh Hard_Disk (or whatever you named your apple formated disc). Read the scripts output, you may see errors. If so the easiest way to make sure it will work is to unmount the drive, verify it, repair it (using the disc utility) and then run the script again.


The problem is, the system does an automatic reboot after installation. There doesn't appear to be a way to stop it. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thank you.
