Hi all - I recently upgraded my iMac from Snow Leopard to Mountain Lion.  When I power up now, I get a screen I didn't get before - it looks like a Unix shell/OS screen.  I have to type 'exit' at the prompt to boot Mt. Lion.  Is this normal?  I don't think it did this the first time, but for some reason it does now.  It never did this when I was running Snow Leopard.


here is a crappy shot of what the screen looks like.

Everything runs fine once I get past this.  I am just wondering why I get this and what it means.



iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.5)
