    Hello Everyone!

    While uninstalling Safari 4 beta it freezed and after 15 minutes of waiting I made a forced restart. Now Mac mini shows the grey screen and won't boot.

    What I've tried:
    - Disk Utility from restore DVD
    - fsck in Single-User Mode
    - resetting PRAM
    - resetting PMU

    and nothing helped, it's still showing the grey screen.

    Can anything else help? I'm doomed to reinstall the Mac OS, am I?

    Yeah, sounds like. If you select archive & install/preserve users and network settings, it should be a relatively painless operation, though.
