Right, .....I'm nearly there!
I've re'run everything, apart from the 10.5.4 update. As last time my machine froze at the grey apple screen after applying this update. So I'm at 10.5.3 with everything looking like a proper working Mac.
I've just cloned my disc to an external USB drive, with the intention of now adding 10.5.4 with the safety net of the cloned drive if it goes wrong again.
Can somebody please confirm the 10.5.4 update is working properly? .....am I doing something really obviously wrong?
I've just noticed, in the "startup disk" system pref's pane, I'm not being shown any start up discs. All I've got is "Network start up" (No Macintosh HD or my USB clone). Is this normal on these systems? & if so, how do I boot from my cloned disc? (apart from physically putting it back in the computer).
