    NOOB. Blue screen?
    I got the upgrade leopard disc and installed it. Now i get the blue screen for about 30 seconds after i turn my computer on? This never occurred when i had tiger osx. How do i fix it? How do i "archive and install" with the upgrade disc because i couldn't find it?

    if it's just a blank blue screen, that is normal.

    Even if the start up time has gone from about 20 seconds to almost a minute?

    Did you look at this Apple Knowledge Base Article, Mac OS X 10.5: "Blue screen" appears after installing Leopard and restarting? It might help you.

    That blue screen is NOT an error screen, it's a Loading screen. 1 Minute on a modern Mac is way too long. Longest here is 10 seconds on my G4 desktop.
