    Specs:
    MacBook Pro | iMac(2.1 G5) | MacBook(2.16 C2D) | MacMini (1.67 CD) | iPhone 4 | iPad (3rd Gen)
    You could try both suggested commands one after the other.
    Type
    /sbin/fsck -y and hit enter (check for the file system errors)
    /sbin/mount -uw / and hit anter (this will mount the file system)
    Type,
    reboot now and hit enter to restart the Mac.

    If the above treatment doesn't work try this.

    Search the net for xpostfacto. The top page in the list that appeared is this one. You could register to gain specific help.

    In the meantime, try starting the Mac while holding down the Shift key a safe start. If it boots, you could yank everything xpostfacto (run a search of the hard drive) though unless you have another bootable system loaded, this likely wouldn't help.

    Sorry, no, because I can't run OS X on this machine, so there's no point in my registering at that site to search it.

    Do you have the original system-install disk? Maybe you could do an archive-and-install with the original disks, thereby saving all your files.

    How to make my 10.4 working? doesn't start normally!*Need help*
    Hi all,

    I've been trying to make my Mac OS X 10.4 working. The problem is that I installed a fresh copy of Mac OS X 10.4 and after when I need to reboot the computer I got a problem. Even if I reinstall Mac OS X, I got the same screen. Look at my video and picture maybe it can help you guys to found out the problem. Thank you for helping me.
    Frank

    Looks like a clammie ... That error you got falls within the Menu Manager Errors group of Mac Sys Errors.

    The translation is this:

    -127 dsHMenuFindErr Couldn't find HMenu's parent in MenuKey
    I'm way out of my depth here but still lookin' for clues ...

    Have you reset the PMU? Unplug mains, take battery out, press the tiny button near the power button using a paperclip, wait 5 seconds, plug in mains again then replace battery.

    Have you tried just typing 'reboot' (without the quotes) when you're taken to the black screen?




    EDIT: I was talking about the first set of pictures you posted. No idea what's going on now.. Sorry.

    Will the computer boot from the DVD by holding down the C key while it's starting? If it does (and it takes a longer time to boot from the DVD), then you've at least isolated the problem to the system on the hard drive.

    If it doesn't start from the DVD, it's more likely a computer hardware problem.
