    for 6 months ago i change the MBP Startup image. Now it looks like linux postscreen. Yesterday I sold mine Macbook on Ebay, i install Leopard freshly, but the linux postscreen is still showing. How can I change it to default.
    Gray Apple Logo on Startup.

    I shot an Picture from Startup.

    No need to read the text.

    From here, you can run this from Terminal to reset that:
    Code:
    sudo nvram boot-args=
    It's a firmware thing. Reinstalling the OS doesn't change the firmware.

    It's just booting in Verbose mode... so yeah, it's a Unix POST screen, lol. Usually you boot in Verbose mode by hitting apple+V.... I'm not sure why yours is stuck there. Mine is because I use XPostFacto on my PowerPC-based Mac.... can't explain why yours is on an intel-based mac though...

    See my post above. It's in the firmware, so you can even do it without XPostFacto.
