Hold on. I'm rebooting it again with command S. All the fans were blowing and it sounded like it was overheating, so I turned it off. Give me a minute. Okay...I will pay you even if it is hardware. Hold on
rm: /var/db/ : is a directory
rm: .AppleSetupDone: no such file or directory
localhost: / root#
it says "no such file or directory"
same thing...but now I held down the "t" and rebooted and I connect that computer with this one (firewire) and I can see everything is there. Is there any way we can fix it by working through this computer?
ugh! Well you can't say we didn't try. So yes, absolutely, take the $58. Thanks for everything.
