    Hi guys,

    I just restarted my MacPro2,1 (8 core 3 GHz, snow leopard)
    and well... I saw this bar that I haven't seen before
    I was wondering what the hell this is because it also took longer to restart (the progress bar thingy)

    I took a picture of it with my phone:
    Picture!

    anyone know what this is/might-be ?


    thnx

    If its not FW update it could be doing a Fdsck. Corrupted boot disk. Needed a clean install, luckily Time machine saved the day
