    @petermac87: I don't think a strand should end just because the original poster says his question has been answered. Others who share the original poster's question might not be satisfied by the answer. Maybe they find the answer too difficult to execute. A strand that doesn't veer off course but pursues the original question further should go on. In this strand it went on to include sadurham's useful variation on VikingOSX's solution.

    OK, so far here are completely different issues and attempted fixes than what the OP was talking about.

     

    This does not work for me sad.gif on my MBP 8.1 with OS X 10.8.2 (12C60)

    I have a partition formatted to Mac OSX (Journaled, Encrypted) and my system keeps prompting for its password on boot.

    I'd like my system to not attempt unlocking the partition on boot, but only when I open Disk Utility and click unlock.

    Perhaps it does not work because the partition is encrypted?

    Thx

     

     

    Thanks, but when I try to save that from AppleScript Editor, I get:

     

    Syntax Error

    Expected “end” or “on” but found unknown token.

     

    How to fix it? Thanks.

     

    Could someone please indicate a step-by-step guide for newbies on Terminal? Thanks.

     

     

    When I press CRTL+O something does happen.  These three lines appear at the bottom of the window;

     

    File Name to Write: /etc/fstab                                                

    ^G Get Help         ^T To Files         M-M Mac Format      M-P Prepend

    ^C Cancel           M-D DOS Format      M-A Append          M-B Backup File

     

    But then pressing CRTL+X doesn't exit me from nano editor.  I causes the error sound.  Did sadhuram omit a step, or is my attempting this in OSX 10.6.8 the error?

     

     

    As you can see, CONFUSION.  Also to post in an answered thread, I repeat, will not attract other users to try to help any furter in that thread as it has been Solved and shows as thus.  To not start another thread when your issues so obviously differ in relation to attempted and failed fixes is both a sign of laziness and arrogance towards the original poster.

     

    If you wish to solve your own issue, then simply start your own thread. One that attracts help by not being solved. Please try to understand the simple dynamics of Troubleshootin Forums.

     

    Cheers

    That is the point, dcouzin. Once a thread has a "Solved" indicator, continuing the thread with other solutions is not helpful, since there is no way to mark several answers as "Solved".

     

    When someone does their due diligence, and searches for a solution by finding "Solved" threads, they don't want to (and shouldn't have to) go painstakingly through a myriad of posts to see if there are any other answers that might work within that thread. They look at the "Solved" answer. In fact, it is counterintuitive to even think that someone might do that.

     

    So, if you have a further question, because that partiular solution did not work for you, it is better to start a new post. Indicate that you have looked at "More Like This" and the solutions offered did not fix the problem. Then, if someone provides a new answer that does solve the problem, then you can mark the new thread as "Solved", and people searching, will see more than one option for fixing their issue....

     

    Cheers,

    Good Luck, I'm sure others will notice it now and help you with your issues.
