Updated to snow leopard and now get a black screen and cursor. Boot up in safe mode fine.
Booted up Command S, mounted the files system as writable then removed the following files:
rm /Library/Preferences/com.apple.loginwindow.plist
rm /Library/Preferences/loginwindow.plist
rm /private/var/db/.AppleUpgrade

Still black screen. booted in SM and performed apple updates. Still black screen. ran a disk check all fine. Removed ram and swap. still black.

What am I missing here? An help is greatly appreciated.

I have the SL 10.6.3 install disc. It boots fine on SB but black screen on regular boot. I don't get it.
