From the disk -- it starts to load but after a few mins then nothing (just stops and hangs) and still in gray screen.
Ok I have already done this but will do again while I wait for more (didn't make any difference when I did this last night)
I got to the part about booting from my install disk and it was working behind the grey screen, but it has now stopped and nothing else is happening. Just hanging in place and I only see the grey screen.
yes that's correct and,
It was booting from the install disk but now has stopped. I have a grey screen with the apple logo and a stopped wheel.
not happening--- same situation starts to boot from the grey screen and then hangs
yes have mac mini with leopard installed on it. Do I just hook the two together or what?
And was wondering if I could format my disk from the command line and start with a new install. I have everything backed up on my timemachine disk.
I would need the correct commands for the second option.
Thanks for the help I give that a try.
