Thread: Mac Mini smiley icon/? folder
11-10-2007, 09:52 PM #1Mac Mini smiley icon/? folder
Hello, here is my problem.
When I try to boot up I get stuck at a smiley face/? folder. If I hit X or OPT I get to the drive selector screen (?) with a straight arrow and a circling arrow but no drives to choose.
Once in a while it will boot normally and run for a few days.
I suspect the cable is loose for the the hard drive/DVD drive controller but I hesitate to try taking it about to check.

go into system preferences, and select your boot drive and select your HD

Do as couch says
You might try starting up in safe mode (press S) on start-up. If it starts up OK in safe mode you know your system or disk structure maybe a bit garbled.
Use ONYX to give your disk and system a complete overhall
