Desktop keeps reloading - Can't open Applications
Allright, so I finally got my hackintosh working, and things were going pretty smoothly for a week. However, while I was working with xcode and the iPhone simulator, a bug in my code caused a kernel panic.
Fine, I thought, not the first time this has happened. I'll just reboot.
To put it simply, No. Things went completely wrong. Here are the symptoms:
- Background image won't load
- Applications look like normal folders (can't run them either)
- Pressing most keys on the keyboard causes the desktop to reload
- Booting into safe mode yields the same results
I've tried booting into single user and running fsck, booting the snow leopard install disk and repairing both disk & permissions, and deleting user cache and preferences.
Normally I find my solutions by googling around, but at this point I'm quite clueless. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
