    I just bought a used macbook pro. I used migration assistant but didn't have permission to open my files on the macbooks new user account. I thought i could just change the entire drive to allow everyone to read and write. BIG MISTAKE. Now it can't get past the gray loading screen.

    It will boot in single user mode and verbose. Tried all the methods i could find online, nothing has worked. Verbose gets to:

    launchctl: Dubious permissions on file (skipping): /Library/LaunchDaemons
    launchctl: Dubious permissions on file (skipping): /System/Librar/LaunchDaemons
    launchctl: Dubious permissions on file (skipping): /etc/match_init.d

    I don't have the install discs. I'm trying not to lose any of my apps since they were a big reason i bought it.
