Zeph Install of 10.5.1 lacking grey apple boot logo?

Well, I installed 10.5.1 flawlessly -- everything works.

Asus M2n-E

amd 6000+ x2 64 @ 3300mhz -- watercooled

2gb @ 800mhz

1 sata x 300gb

1 pata x 160

EVGA 8800 gtx

Onboard HD audio using Azalia

Linksys LNE100TX using Tulip


Anyways, with that out of the way ---


everything works perfectly like I said, EXCEPT.... when it boots, I do not get the apple logo splash screen, instead i get the verbose unix style text. That was great for troublshooting drivers and whatnot, but now that it runs great....I want to hide that uglyness. I tried the nvraw boot-args and it says that nvram is not compatable with my computer. SO...I appear to be at a loss here...any help fellas?



Thanks in advance!

- Open Terminal window then type:


sudo nano /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist


- provide password


- Use the arrow keys to move the cursor.


- remove the flag -v located in:


<key>Kernel Flags</key>



- Ctrl+O to save (and then press Enter to save) and Ctrl+X to close.


- Reboot


- Enjoy the spinning logo ;)
