Can't Safe Boot with 10.6.2 and GTX 285

Can't safe boot with 10.6.2 and NVIDIA GTX 285 (2009 Mac Pro).
What the heck am I supposed to do, take out the graphics card every time I want to safe boot?!
Suggestions please!

No, I think what it is, is that the GTX 285 drivers somehow are being treated as 3rd party extensions not to be loaded on a safe boot, but the problem is that without those drivers, even if I switch my monitor over to my GT 120 card, it still won't boot. Ugh.
I am considering reinstalling 10.6 over on top of my current system, then putting the 10.6.2 on top of that. If I do this, do I risk losing any preferences or having to reinstall any 3rd-party software? At this point, I'll happily reinstall whatever it takes... I just didn't want to have to do a clean system where I have to track down every single bookmark file and saved preference for my main apps, but it could be this is now starting to take more time than it simply would have to do that from the get-go. Sigh.

  • How can I triple boot with OSX, Windows XP, and Windows 7 RC?

    Here's the short story:
    I have OS X 10.5 and Windows XP on an internal drive.
    My goal is to install the Windows 7 RC on a bootable external drive connected through eSATA
    Currently:
    I used Winclone to copy my XP partition (with a different-looking desktop) onto the external drive to test if I could boot from it. Seems the EFI boot sequence recognizes the external copy in any case. Picture here: [http://img171.imageshack.us/i/library5991.jpg> (ignore the backup hard drive)
    When I select the Windows icon on the left, it boots the internal drive partition. However, when I select the icon on the right, it also boots the internal partition.
    Is there any way I can manipulate the BIOS emulation to chose between the two drives? Would clearing the internal Windows partition let it default to the external one? Would just installing Windows 7 RC resolve the issue?

    Hi KWarp,
    here a guide on how-to triple boot OSX, XP and Vista http://guides.macrumors.com/Triple_Boot
    Replacing Vista with Windows 7 should be no difference.
    To my knowledge Windows can not be booted from an external harddisk and I don't think that Microsoft has changed that with Windows 7 (although I like to be wrong on that ).
    Intel-Macs don't have a BIOS but use its successor EFI.
    Tools for 'fumbling' with EFI are restricted to Apple Technicians.

  • Can I dual boot with MAC OS/X and Windows

    What is the best way to configure a dual boot on my MAC Bookpro laptop? Also, can I dual boot Windows 8 and MAC OS?

    The first alternative is a dual-boot arrangement between OS X and Windows provided with OS X.
    Windows on Intel Macs
    There are presently several alternatives for running Windows on Intel Macs.
         1. Install the Apple Boot Camp software.  Purchase Windows
             XP w/Service Pak2, Vista, or Windows 7.  For Boot Camp
             4.0 and above you can only use Windows 7 or later. Follow
             instructions in the Boot Camp documentation on
             installation of Boot Camp, creating Driver CD, and
             installing Windows.  Boot Camp enables you to boot the
             computer into OS X or Windows.
         2. Parallels Desktop for Mac and Windows XP, Vista Business,
             Vista Ultimate, or Windows 7.  Parallels is software
             virtualization that enables running Windows concurrently
             with OS X.
         3. VM Fusion and Windows XP, Vista Business, Vista Ultimate,
             or Windows 7.  VM Fusion is software virtualization that
             enables running Windows concurrently with OS X.
         4. CrossOver which enables running many Windows
             applications without having to install Windows.  The
             Windows applications can run concurrently with OS X.
         5. VirtualBox is an Open Source freeware virtual machine such
             as VM Fusion and Parallels that was developed by Solaris.
             It is not as fully developed for the Mac as Parallels and VM
             Fusion.
    Note that VirtualBox, Parallels, and VM Fusion can also run other operating systems such as Linux, Unix, OS/2, Solaris, etc.  There are performance differences between dual-boot systems and virtualization.  The latter tend to be a little slower (not much) and do not provide the video performance of the dual-boot system. See MacTech Labs- Virtualization Benchmarks, January 2013 | MacTech for comparisons of Boot Camp, Parallels, and VM Fusion. Boot Camp is only available with Leopard or Snow Leopard. Except for Crossover and a couple of similar alternatives like DarWine you must have a valid installer disc for Windows.
    You must also have an internal optical drive for installing Windows. Windows cannot be installed from an external optical drive.

  • Can't safe boot

    None of these worked after installing Leopard. Trying to safe boot with shift key down it just boots normally. Similar problems or solutions anyone? The 10.5.2 is installed.

    I had this problem as well. It seems to be an issue with the new thin aluminum keyboard. Try it again using the old plastic keyboard.
    Also, when booting up, remember to hold the power button until you hear the high pitched beep. Thats when you start holding the shift down.
    This should fix it.

  • Why does my Mac boot with a Grey screen and a globe?

    Why does my Mac boot with a Grey screen and a globe?

    Usually means you don't have a bootable system installed so the OS is looking for a bootable system on the network.
    Does the computer eventually start up shortly after the globe appears? If so then open Startup Disk preferences, select your boot volume and click on the Restart button. If this is not the case then you need to reinstall Snow Leopard.
    Reinstall OS X without erasing the drive
    Do the following:
    1. Repair the Hard Drive and Permissions
    Boot from your Snow Leopard Installer disc. After the installer loads select your language and click on the Continue button. When the menu bar appears select Disk Utility from the Utilities menu. After DU loads select your hard drive entry (mfgr.'s ID and drive size) from the the left side list.  In the DU status area you will see an entry for the S.M.A.R.T. status of the hard drive.  If it does not say "Verified" then the hard drive is failing or failed. (SMART status is not reported on external Firewire or USB drives.) If the drive is "Verified" then select your OS X volume from the list on the left (sub-entry below the drive entry,) click on the First Aid tab, then click on the Repair Disk button. If DU reports any errors that have been fixed, then re-run Repair Disk until no errors are reported. If no errors are reported click on the Repair Permissions button. Wait until the operation completes, then quit DU and return to the installer.
    If DU reports errors it cannot fix, then you will need Disk Warrior and/or Tech Tool Pro to repair the drive. If you don't have either of them or if neither of them can fix the drive, then you will need to reformat the drive and reinstall OS X.
    2. Reinstall Snow Leopard
    If the drive is OK then quit DU and return to the installer.  Proceed with reinstalling OS X.  Note that the Snow Leopard installer will not erase your drive or disturb your files.  After installing a fresh copy of OS X the installer will move your Home folder, third-party applications, support items, and network preferences into the newly installed system.
    Download and install the Combo Updater for the version you prefer from support.apple.com/downloads/.

  • Can all macbooks boot from usb(stick,hdd) and firewire(hdd) an os: linux, win, mac os x, opensolaris, etc

    Subject: BOOT FROM EXTERNAL STORAGE DEVICE - After this setup properly
    Can all macbooks boot from usb(stick,hdd) and firewire(hdd) an os: linux, win, mac os x, opensolaris, etc?
    what about:
    Apple MacBook Pro MB133LL/A 15.4-inch Laptop(OLD VERSION) (4GB RAM 120G HD 2.33 GHz Core 2 Duo processor, 15.4" Matte Screen, 4GB memory, 120 GB 7200 rpm hard drive) White

    Yes,
    Disconnect everything hooked up to the PC except the keyboard, mouse and monitor.
    Then use this method to flash the BIOS.  It is the safest way to go.
    USB Device BIOS Flashing in DOS
    DOS Flash  (DOSFlash.exe, FlshUefi.cpu) is the DOS-compatible System BIOS flash utility that can be used from a DOS bootable storage device (where "DOS" refers to any of a number of compatible operating systems such as FreeDOS, MS-DOS or DR-DOS). FlshUefi.cpu is the required driver for DOSFlash.exe. To flash the System BIOS from a bootable USB storage device, you will need to copy the contents of the DOS Flash folder to the USB device, boot the PC from the USB device, and execute the DOSFlash application. To see a more complete description of the DOS flash utilities, view DOSFlash.txt located in the DOS Flash folder. This folder also contains the required binary image of the BIOS.  The binary image file is named xxx_MMmm.bin where "xxx" is the BIOS family, "MM" is the major version number, and "mm" is the minor version number.  This file can be copied to the root directory of any USB removable medium for use with the F10 setup "Flash System ROM" option 
    View Contents of DOS Flash Folder
    The links on this post don't work. I copied the section from the BIOS flashing instructions for the specific section you need.

    Try the remaining items of:                           
    - iOS: Not responding or does not turn on
    - Also try DFU mode after try recovery mode

    - If not successful and you can't fully turn the iOS device fully off, let the battery fully drain. After charging for an least an hour try the above again.
    - Try another cable
    - Try on another computer                            
    - If still not successful that usually indicates a hardware problem and an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store is in order.

    Im switching email accounts on my itunes account am the computer isnt recognizing purchases made from my other account on the new one (apps). How can I sign in with my new account and get the purchases apps on both accounts?

    This was EXACTLY what I needed about the purchases I made from my device. However, is there a way to re-download other ones you've made from a computer? Because I realized some of them were not just purchased from my device.
    This is a picture of what it looks like now:
    http://tinypic.com/r/107quxu/7
    As you can see, the stuff circled in red doesn't give me an option to download from Cloud Beta because it already says "downloaded".
    any way to get around that?

    Where are the notes from my iphone backup and how can I sync them with my new macbook and ipad. And my galaxy 3g if someone is feeling especially generous with their time and attention. Many thanks.

    - The iTunes backup that iTunes makes included photos in the camera roll. If yo go to iTunes>Preferences>Devices what is the date of the backup? Is it when the photos were on the iPod? You have to restore from that backup.
    - What may have happened is that you backup the iPod after you restored the iPod but before restoring from backup. iTunes only keeps one backup and overwrites the previous backup with the changes.

  • Mac mini safe boot with bluetooth keyboard

    I have a mac mini running mac os 10.6
    Cannot boot my mac mini. When I start from CD and run disk utility i am getting following error msg: "invalid b-tree node size"
    Seems to be a fs problem and not hw. Safe boot might solve the problem :  )
    Now i am trying to do a safe boot but no success so far. I am having a bluetooth keyboard and mouse.
    Holding down shift key and power on is not working but holding down cmd&s for single mode or holding
    down c for booting from cd is working.
    Any ideas?

    That message indicates that one or more of the directories on the drive has become damaged. Disk Utility can usually diagnose such problems, but not repair them.
    Suggest you get a copy of Alsoft's DiskWarriot. DiskWarrior can usually fix such problems with no loss of data. There's no need to install DiksWarrior - boot the machine to the CD and run DiskWarrior from that.

  • Kernel trap prevents normal reboot, can only safe boot

    Hi,
    I was trying to connect my mid 2012 MacBook Air 13" with Mavericks 10.9.5 to a projector that I previously succesfully connected.   In the meantime I mistakenly clicked to connect to an unknown AirPlay device, thinking it was perhaps the projector.  As I was not able to connect to the projector, I wanted to reboot the computer but it never did.  It can safe boot and I obtained a kernel trap log file.  I tried disk utility to repair permissions, everything seems ok, but still cannot boot normally.  If anyone can help me identify what may be causing the problem, I'd be awaiting your suggestions.  Thanks in advance!

    Thanks again for your suggestions Linc.
    I wanted to give an update as the issue seems to be resolved through running software update.
    Since I was able to use safe boot, I downloaded the 10.9.5 Combo Update file and ran the update.  Afterwards, the computer booted with no problems.  If anyone is experiencing repetitive kernel traps, I hope this will solve the problem for some of you as well!

  • What does this log mean? Fresh os install still can only safe boot

    *My head is about to explode.*
    *Last night, I pulled my old hard drive. put in new one and did fresh install.*
    *Ever confident that this would magically fix my computer.*
    *I can still only boot in safe mode.*
    *I ran AHT. everything passed. I have reseted every thing and reset logic board. yes only one push of the magic button*
    *below is a system log from before I put in new drive.*
    *however, after new drive and fresh install and still can't boot I check sytem log and still get same message:*
    *Cannot use ATS Persistent Store - switching to old FODB cache code*
    *Is this my underlying problem?*
    *What does it mean?*
    *When I try to boot up normally, I get to grey screen , spinning wheel, then wheel turns pixelly and fuzzy with random colors juist where the wheel is and the grey screen with apple logo fuzzy then black.*
    *Any words of wisdom will save my sanity.*

    thank you thank you for taking an interest. this is so frustrating.
    i only have apple keyboard, mighty mouse, and 20 inch cinema display connected. this morning took out memory and tried to boot up with individual pairs in the first bank. first the (2)256, the (2) 1g, and then the other (2) 1g modules. everytime I get the weird fuzzy wheel under the logo after a while, black screen flashes, then grey apple logo fuzzy screen then black forever.
    I ran tiger updates this morn. still will only boot to safe mode. then tried to run leopard disk to install it
    will not boot from leopard disk.
    tried safe boot, then doulble click install leopard, restart, then the saga repeats with the pixely red square around the wheel.
    these are fresh drives with only what came on instll disk loaded.
    thanks again for taking an interest.
    i love this system(well at least i did). I want to install leopard on my powerbook too but am terrified to do so right now since it is working and I have work to do. Can't afford to have no computer to do my work on...self employment is great?!
    This is making me crazy. I anxiously await your words of wisdom.

  • Can only Safe Boot

    I seem to be in a world of trouble right now.
    It all started simply enough. I had Parallels running when I had to do something. When I got back my iMac was asleep, no biggy. I simple woke it up but when I did everything was frozen. So I waited for a few minutes... still nothing so I turned it off using the power button.
    Turn it back on, the usual grey screen with the Apple on it. Followed by the grey screen without the apple, then a blue one, then yet another grey screen... and then that is it. Tried restarting again but ended up with the same sequence with just a grey screen and cursor by the end yet again. Kept trying and sometimes the screen will even dim into the black screen of death telling me to restart but nothing more.
    So I tried booting from my OS X Install Disc... nothing, I get the same grey screen. I can't even boot a Mac disc. Tried a Linux disc and it worked. No such luck with anything OS X related even from a disc right now. Did a hardware test using my OS X Tiger disc by holding down the key and it said everything is fine.
    Pretty worried by this stage I then try doing a Safe Boot... it works! So the next step is to do a normal reboot... But then I get the same sequence as before. I can only seem to Safe Boot. Safe Boot even allows me to boot Mac install discs. So I used Disk Utility, it said my hard drive was fine. There were a lot of permission issues but it fixed most of them. But I still can't boot unless I use Safe Boot.
    Since I can't even boot from the Mac Install disc without using Safe Boot I'm guessing a re-install would be pointless at this stage.
    So here I am using Safe Boot, can anyone please help me?

    Hi C, sorry to take long to be back.
    So we have:
    Power up leads to a normal boot process until the launchd calls the login window.
    Safe boot is successful but the system restart from here is not.
    From this point the next one is to reset PRAM and NVRAM as stated in http://support.apple.com/kb/TS2570.
    To perform this reset use these guide http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1379 and return to steps in the first one.
    After this reset If normal boot still don't work is time to insert Install DVD and use Disk Utility.
    It would be useful to use the verbose boot on any attempt by holding COMMAND+V in addiction to any other key combination and read the screen printed messages so you can maybe see any warning that could be an evidence to the problem origin.
    BEFORE any of these recover steps you should disconnect all cables, wait a minute or so and connect only the essential for use, that would be the power cable.
    The first troubleshooting guide has a long list of procedures to perform in sequence that if not lead to a successful boot will advice you to backup your data (safe boot, connect usb/firewire external disk, copy data) and drive your Mac to Apple Service. Use this guide and take detailed note of what happens and bring it here so we can have more data to work with.
    Good luck.

  • Can't even boot with 4gb, 975x Plat PowerUP, XP Pro 3d bit

    Hey all, I've had a Core 2 Duo e6600 running on a 975x Platinum PowerUP edition since august now with 2 GB of memory. I recently added an additional 2GB.
    I understand that I may never actually see all 4gb of memory in Windows as I only have Windows XP Pro 32 bit, but it my OS won't even boot with the other 2 sticks in there (4gb). I get a BSOD on the loading screen. The BIOS detects all 4gb correctly. I have tried the /PAE switch and /noexecute=optin swith and neither work. I've even tried disabling PAE and putting /noexecute=alwaysoff in there and I still can't boot (you'd think that I'd be able to at least get it to boot with 3.25 or whatever GB showing up, right?). I have the current official 7.40 BIOS. Does anyone have any advice for me?
    Summary: 4GB recognized by bios, Win XP Pro 32 bit won't boot BOTH with or without /PAE and /noexecute=optin(or AlwaysOff).
    Conroe E6600 and 975x Plat PUP bios v 7.40
    THANKS!

    Run memtest with all 4 dimms installed - Since it's valueram there's a chanse those sticks are not identical. They just use the cheapest chips they can find at the time to produce valueram, so even if you buy valueram from the same make and type, but at a diffirent time, they might still use diffirent chips ...
    Non-identical RAM can cause errors in a dual channel enviroment (wich your core2 is)...
    Core2 64 bit performance is where it should be. Just as fast as 32 bit for normal applications and loads faster for applications wich put the extra cpu registers to use...
