    I just got my mac mini from apple after being repaired and now when the computer boots I have terminal output showing all this stuff happening. I can't figure out how to get it back to the normal boot screen.

    I think what you are describing is the verbose boot mode. The keyboard shortcut to start it is to hold command+V while the computer is restarting. I dont know if doing this will turn it off, but you could try it.

    That didn't work, but thanks for the suggestion. Anyone else have an idea?

    Maybe the Apple techs left it in some sort of diagnostic mode. Anyway, isn't this much more interesting/informative than the grey Apple?

    It is somewhat interesting, it tells you what kernel extensions are loading and other things.

    It actually helped me fix my computer after doing the recent security update package.

    While booting it keep getting stuck on a Cisco VPN kernal extension. So I went into safe mode and deleted it. (So I guess it helped me)

    But I really like to just have the grey apple. :)
