I've asked everywhere. EVERYWHERE. No one can come up with an answer. Its a HUGE mystery. I wish Sherlock Holms was still alive... But anyway, I have an iMac SE DV 400 that don't like OS X too much... In September 2001, I fell for a deal I'll never regret. OS X 10.1 was out, but I still went with 10.0, because it came with a t-shirt. That was like, ultimate coolness. But, on with the issue. I loaded it onto my iMac. Wouldn't connect to AOL, but thats cool, I'll just get OS X 10.1... er... thats another $130... so no. Now, I don't know what happened, but all of a sudden, OS X wouldn't load. The screen freezez gray and don't start up. It only starts up in a safe boot. Same with 10.2, and 10.3, however 10.3 was installed via FireWire Target Disk Mode, because my internal CD drive died. But thats another story. YES, I installed the Firmware update. When I get my CD drive which is soon, I will try to install Panther, but I doubt it will work if Jaguar didn't. Thanks for your help.
