Having had major start up and software problems I decided to do a clean installation of Leopard, did backups and started the installation on my G5! Eventhough the OS X 10.5.1 DVD was tested prior to the installation to be in perfect condition, the installation quick somewhere down the line. After several attempts it finished and a restart was successful - everything seemed fine and I started with the software updates....the requested restart never occurred and after 45 min of watching that little rotating ball with no action taking place inside the G5, a forced shut down stopped the process!

Since then the setup assistent is all that comes up after start!


Trying to start via the installation DVD (C-key during start) or safe boot or single user mode......works!


I got a new OS X 10.5.1 installation DVD from a friend - no change!


Has anyone any idea what I can do to at least get to the single user mode so I can clean out the fault from there????


Any suggestions will be appreciated!

PowerMac, Mac OS X (10.5.1)
