    Erm, I might be on the wrong track, but are you saying you installed Boot Camp and now you can't get back into OSX? :)

    Ahh, okay. Sorry. :eek:

    So, what method did you use to change it in the first place? Did you use Visage, or maybe something like this? Do you have a copy of the original? :)

    Okay, maybe don't link to ZIP files like that. :)

    Is this on Tiger or Panther because the link to the OSXHints site tells you where the boot panel is on Tiger. Earlier versions of OSX have it in a different spot though. :)

    This might not work but....
    Download the attached file. (It's my unmodified Tiger "WatingForLoginWondow" file.) From the Finder menu select "Go" then select "Go to Folder", type "/usr/libexec/" and press Go.
    Drag the downloaded "WaitingForLoginWindow" file to newly opened folder. (You will have to type your admin password.)
    That might do it... :cool:

    I little off the mark Mad Jew. :p :cool:

    Edit: Err, hold on for that attached file...
    OK, It appears that MR wont let you upload that certain file type. Well if you can get your hands on the original file thats how you would do it...... :cool:
