    I think i'm in trouble.

    Recently needed to do a clean install to my MBP, which was running snow leopard.

    Since I don't have the original dvd with me at the moment, I decided to use the leopard dvd that came with the computer and did a restore using a time machine backup.

    All went smoothly, but after the restore was completed and the system told me to restart, after it did, a grey screen comes down asking me to restart the computer. I'm stuck... urgh

    U guys have any idea how to deal with this? Could this have anything to do with the fact that the backup was done with snow leopard?

    Thanks heaps.

    Do a clean install with your Snow Leopard DVD.
