Help! iMac wont boot!
My iMac will not boot passed the screen with Apple logo and spinning wheel.
My son accidentally hit the off switch on the iMac's power strip while i was doing the following;
Booted into single user mode
Type fsck -fy
Type mount -uw /
Type launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.DirectoryServices.plist
Type dscl . -passwd /Users/username password, replace “username” with the targeted user and “password” with the password you wants.
I think i got as far as typing in reboot before the power went off i can't recall?
Any ideas on why it won't boot and what i can do to fix it?
I have a lot of stuff i don't want to loose.
My fingers are crossed and thanks ahead of time!
