So I sold a powerbook on eBay....
I was being nice and putting a fresh install of Jaguar on it.
After installation it said "You need to restart your computer" with the multiple languages right after the grey apple logo appears on the white screen.
I figured "Eh what the hey, I'll reformat the hard drive and maybe it'll go away."
Nope, it's still there...
So right now I'm doing an archive and install....

Uh...help? Please?

*Edit* Yeah please help...I'm literally freaking out over here...I sold a 400MHz TiBook for $400...I need this thing to work right.

Yes my name is Jaguar.
No, it is not a joke.
I don't find your "I'm a cheetah." joke funny.

Update:
Formatting the hard drive via. "Archive and Install" solves the problem.
