    Hi,

    My Mac won't boot, I only get message saying the the startup disk is full, after clicking OK, all I get is a blank blue screen without any icons or anything that can let me clean my hard drive.

    Is there anyway to get in to the system like a DOS prompt in windows?

    Thanks,
    Wilbert

    Yes, you can boot into Single-User Mode and get to a command prompt that way. As for finding the cause of your full disk with no GUI... good luck!

    Mac OS or application bug?

    It is too coincidental that I woke up this morning to find the same error. I guess it is time to visit the Mac store, but I would lean more toward a bug. I have an external TB that I keep all files on. The local hard drive usually hangs around 32g. Now all 249G are full.
