    Default vista updates caused black screen--no boot

    hey hi-- i updated vista biz last night (latest round of patch-tuesday), but instead of allowing it to install and re-boot, i chose the install and shut-down option.

    this am, i get the BSoD. powering on the unit (24" imac running leopard, fully patched) only results in Mac's "tone" at start-up, then nothing. i tried to boot from a tiger install CD (i had nothing else at home) with no luck. i'll try the leopard install CD tonite, but i wanted to see if anyone else had this experience with a vista patch deployment.

    thanks in advance.

    If I'm correct, Vista flashes the BIOS... (can't expect something less dangerous from Microsoft.)

    And Apple's computers ain't have any BIOS...

    see da problem?
