    hey everyone,

    when i boot up my mac mini it boots into console

    while this is not a problem - i would like it to boot into a GUI like my macbook. i did not change any settings - it's just been this way since i've had it.

    i tried a few 'sudo' commands that wikipedia listed - however i got errors.

    is there any terminal commands that would re enable the GUI bootup?

    thanks!!

    To turn on Verbose booting, at the Terminal type the following:
    sudo nvram boot-args="-v"

    Disabling Verbose booting is just as easy:
    sudo nvram boot-args=

    thank you!

    also - i have noticed since i tried to install leopard on the mac mini (not knowing the disc was hardware specific)... i have seen diskarb is not ready yet, we'll try again soon.

    this was fixed when i inserted the leopard CD and it booted from there... this leads me to believe it's trying to boot from the CD and it's not in there...

    is there a way to disable this? my bootup disc is set as my main hard drive... so i don't know why i'm experiencing this problem
