    Specs:
    13" MBP 2.53 DC2, 09 Mini 2.0 DC2, 07 Mini 2.16 DC2, MB 2.0 DC2, iBook G3 900MHz, G4 Sawtooth 1.6Ghz
    swapped HDD's now starting in Verbose on one
    i just helped a friend that sold his black 2.0 C2D swap his HDD out of it and place it in a Unibody 2.4 C2D and then the Unibodies into the BlackBook.

    BlackBook starts up fine with the HDD from the Unibody and runs great.

    However the Unibody is starting up in Verbose mode and looks like it has to find some kexts/drivers for a couple things as words fly across the screen and then it fires up. it also goes to the black screen with text flying when i shut it down.

    both macbooks were running the latest 10.5.7.

    i did a permissions repair on the Unibody and restart but it still fires up with the Verbose screen.

    any suggestions?

    thanks

    solved

    if anyone encounters this problem go to sys prefs > startup disk > select your HDD and restart

    all is good now

    Ok you got me...what is "Verbose mode"?

    Maybe it's it's something I'm already aware of, just different terminology.

    Thanks,
