I'm wondering if this is normal during the Leopard startup sequence. Instead of getting the Mac OS X screen with a blue meter I simply get a blank blue screen during startup now. I know others have reported getting locked up on a blue screen during install. This is not the issue I am experiencing. I don't have any unusual hacks on my computer and have never modded the OS with anything unusual. I'm just curious to know what other users startup screens look like in order to figure out if I should investigate this further and consider doing a reinstall of some kind. Thanks!
