I guesst this is the part-2 of my journey [ Lion Downgrade to SnowLeopard, MacPro ]


So, I thought I'm all good to go with my new MacPro but after setting up my user accounts and permissions and some applications, I got this problem.


Here's a little backtrack, I needed to roll back OSX for our primary application Avid MC5 :

  1. Reformatted Hdrive/Installed SnowLeo. CD (10.6.3) / installed UpdateCombo (10.6.8) [target mode-MAcPro-MacPro-FW800]
  2. migrated user account/files using MigrationAssist. [target mode]
  3. Snow running well, AvidMC-5 on migrated user account
  4. set permissions of hard drives (info/sharing&permission)
  5. got errors (error16) when launching apps like Photoshop, Audition-trial...
  6. Shut down to reboot... NO BOOT (only gray apple)


Now, I'm running DiskUtility, repairing permission via target mode...


Any ideas or recommendations?


Thank you.

Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8), Video Editing Workstation - 2
