    Make sure you have the correct install disc, if you have multiple Macs. If it will not boot to the disc, you have likely a logic board issue, which was not caused by the update.

    The Mac is trying to help you. It's a new feature where it won't boot in hopes that you'll switch to a different computing platform.

    Who is Evan? Is he the guy at the Genius Bar? Those guys never help.
