i deleted the langauges packs using minolingual (think thtas what its called).

I left English intact, but deleted english US. now mac office 2004 (student edition) fails to load. i've tried to reinstall but the setup assistant will not load either.

Any ideas? possible to just re-install the language pack? Im at home and don't have access to the os x discs untill friday.

cheers

Pacifist lets you select from the install disks the package(s) you want to install.

Cheers. So i actually need the os discs handy? and do you know if this will resolve the issue?

Xtorrent - it has now stopped searching.

I've made quite a few changes today, firefox gone, using safari now, and deleted language packs. not sure if it s just a coinscidence?

after hours of searching i've found the answer to my own question.

http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=250021

the program also deletes vital parts of the system architecture. I deleted all but intel, so any old programs, such as office which can run on powermacs were unable to run.

I need to do a clean install.

Hope this thread may help others.

for reference - anyone who's searching for this sort of thing.

you may want to use delocalizer instead.

For reference to others, do not remove any architecture. The lads at monolingual have left the default setting to remove everythin but intel. this is BAD, as i have found out.

Don't even use proograms like this, your removing languages, which saved me 800mb (removed everything but english, even us english went) which included architecture.

Is it really worth the hassle? (i know the answer).

with delocalizer i saved about 2.8 Gb and have had no problems.
i left english (us and uk) and spanish.

try not to scare people away from tools that actually do work, but make sure you know what you're doing before you use something like this. a good search through these forums would have turned up almost this exact same problem from a month or so ago...
