    Default Update Broke the Hackintosh

    Hi,
    First off, I'm very new to this "hackintosh" thing.

    Here's the deal...

    I recently updated my OS to 10.5.8 and now the laptop will not boot into the Mac OS. It still boots into Vista just fine, but I need both to do my job.

    When I start up to boot into Mac OS the loading Grey apple screen appears, the screen goes light blue as usual then goes black with my mouse on the screen. Eventually the mouse becomes a spinning wheel of death and stays that way forever.

    I have been told I can simply boot from Gparted on a disk and flag the Mac disk as bootable again, but I'm having some real trouble doing this.

    Any help would be great at this point.

    Thanks,

    sounds like your extensions arent supported or messed up during the update
    Get the latest info for NoAccSplash Here
    Currently it should work on iOS 4.x - 6.x
    If you'd like to help extend its functionality, the source is also available.

    Default going backwards

    Thanks for the reply.

    what would be the easiest fix? (without losing all my data obviously)

    Is there a way to revert to pre update and try again?

    And no I didn't do the smart thing and back up before updating.

    Thanks.

    I simply clicked update when it showed up. I run a mac at home that is not a hack and kind of "took over" this laptop/hackintosh where I work. I did not realize that there could be issues with the update so I just updated as I would at home. then no book.

    I know I need to get into the terminal somehow and change the extensions but I don;t know what to change them to or where to ind that info as I was not the person who originally "hackintoshed" this computer.

    thanks for all the help.
