My Macpro quadcore2009 has developed quite a headache. On startup it will reach the point where I can see the desktop image , and instantly the screen reverts to the gray screen - keeps going and does the same over and over. From time to time, when in gray, I get a box saying that if I want the applications to load up to where they had been before shut down, I should click yes, otherwise in so many seconds, the machine will restart.
I have started in safe mode,rebuilt permissions, reset pram, and reinstalled the lion system software from the apple site. Nothing helps. Any ideas?
Yes I did. Initially I started getting a spinning ball a couple of days ago, and then suddenly the issue I had described up top. I had reinstalled the system software for the apple site , so it was not a clean install to begin with.
All is well now, and I even just solved my Aperture vault issue as well- I copied the vault back on to the pictures folder in the new user account I had created, and once there, was able to unlock the vault from the get info window.
Here too I was not thinking and tried to restore directly from the backup I had .
