    Hi There, can anyone help?

    When I start up my Mac (G4), I get a black screen with white text top left hand corner that says:
    Darwin/BSD (computer name) (console)
    Login:

    OSX has disappeared. Can I get it back?

    Thanks
    Terry

    Just guessing. Try booting from the CD and run disk utility and see if you can find anything wrong with your hardware. Repair permissions?

    Edit:

    You could also try single use mode COMMAND-S
    verbose mode COMMAND-V
    and lastly reset PRAM CMD-OPTION-P-R

    Thanks for your advice.
    Sadly the problem persists. I may have to bite the bullet and reload the OS.
