Are permissions specific to hardware or software? I ask this because I was wondering if I plugged my mac HD into my pc could I access the mac files even though they have "everybody" set to "no access"? I basically changed the permissions on my mac for eveyone to no access and now the machine wont boot. It won't even let me on safe mode.
I now have the original cd and have tried booting with 'c' and also with 'options' but nothing is happening Please help
Windows can not Read Mac formatted drives unless you install a special preogram that allow it to.
If you set permissions on any file, set of files, folder or set of folders (or to the ROOT of the drive) you have screwed the Pooch and restricted access to No One even the system.
Right the system won't boot because you have basically LOCK the drive for everyone.
At the chime Hold Down the Option key until you see the Boot menu screen.
I did use a DL disc. Currently I have a dual layer dvd with a snow leopard dmg file on it. do i just need to extract it and then burn it? If I only need to use the disc utility feature can I copy that from the .DMG and just use a standard dvd or does it have other dependencies and how would i go about doing this?
I have no idea. Never ran Linux on a Mac, run it on PC. But I doubt anything you try will work. Even when and if you get the system started from that installer DVD you are trying to make.
Setting the permissions on the Drive for Everyone to No Access basically FUBARs the system to the point about the only thing to do is Wipe the drive and reinstall the OS or Restore from a Time Machine Backup. I guess you don't have one of those either.
