I guess I had better find my discs to do repair permissions. Then again I would have to plug the sata back in to do that - what a loop this is !
Some info on repairing permissions
, you'll want to do that from the startup volume, and not the install disk. (Safe mode, if you still can't startup normally)
And if Safe mode works, consider what it's not
using, to isolate the problem. Is a little odd the other drive would boot normally...
When all else fails, try everything!
The Rep System and you.
