I placed OS X 10.5 installation DVD and followed the instructions like anyone else. Everything went fine and it started installing the operating system. After it finished my mac restarted by itself, started booting back up again then it stopped with nothing but a blue screen and a cursor. I left it like that for a whole hour but nothing happened. I tried restarting it still nothing comes up except that blue screen and cursor. (Mac's "blue screen of death?")
For almost seven hours straight I've been installing/reinstalling, mounting/unmounting, and restarting my Mac thousands and thousands of times that I actually thought it will never work. I even formatted the old disk and installed Leopard from scratch yet it won't get past that phase!
Then, out of desperation, I reinstalled OS X 10.4(.2) Tiger back again and overwrote it with Leopard. The result is a fully functional OS X 10.5 but without my old files. Thank god I backed up all my files before starting this whole process. *siiggghhhh*
- Takes slightly longer time to boot.
Still way faster than Windows Shista.
- New Finder is outstanding.
- Dock looks odd. Not used to it maybe?
- Spaces sucks. Expose still does a great job to me.
- Verify/repair disk permissions doesn't work?!
- Everything's almost the same but works in a different way. Still as simple as possible.
I'm gonna miss Menufela. ;P
