But part way through i decided that i would just leave it how it was so i replaced the one i was woking on with the copy i made. when i loged out it brought me to a black screen which stated the following.

Darwin/bsd (TOAST.local.)(console)

I don't know what you've done.

Put the either software install/restore cds that came with your computer into your cd drive and hold c as the computer starts up. You can reinstall OSX from there should you wish, or try to undo what you did.

What utility did you use to install the window mod? If you did it manually, I suggest you download a gui-based interface tool such as Visage, which I use - it is good - I've had no problems at all.

I'm in your forums, writing sentences in a grammatically acceptable manner.

Life is really simple... If your not sure of something, then read more into it before you mess around. Otherwise to resolve the problems, you might need to do a complete reinstall.

Normally if it's self installing, there will be a log file telling you what your system has installed and where. Found either in Root or
