Boots to blue screen with black vertical bar
I have IDeneb 10.5.5 as new install on a Sony VGN-NR385E. 2 Gig ram, 320 Gig SATA drive w 16 meg cache. Easy BCD lets me share XP and Windows 7 with the Mac OSx. All boot. When the Mac boots I get a cleanly formatted blue screen with about 1 inch black on both sides - then it goes to a full blue screen with a vertical black bar about 2 inches wide with about 2 inches blue to the right and 8 inches blue to the left with three white with red horizontal lines evenly spaced across the screen.
I have used MacDrive to see all the files on the Mac drive. Ext Journaled. The installation appears to have gone fine.
This is an Intel 965 (GMA 3100) board with T5500 Core 2 Duo.
I have tried the graphics mode command but the same thing comes up.
Is there anyway to stop this to a command line? I have a bit of Linux experience and experience with X. I am pretty sure this is graphics problem with X - but I do not know what with the Mac OSx
I am currently downloading 10.5.6 ppf4 - but I really do not want to add insult to injury with a new install and new problems
Has anyone seen this and know how to fix it?
