    I have a problem. I have installed Leopard on a partition on my MacBook. When install successfully completed, my Macbook restarted but it hangs and does not restart so I had to switch the power off by the power button. I then switched my MacBook back on to complete registration and finally got into Leopard.

    I then updated using Software Update and then restarted but it will not restart. When I try to restart i get presented with a window telling me that "Updating Boot Cache". I then click "OK" but it hangs on the desktop wallpaper and pointer. I have tried to leave my MacBook for half an hour but it is still hanging on the desktop wallpaper and pointer. Same thing happens with Shutdown:eek::(

    Please advise

    Same Problem

    I tried to install the Epson Driver and when I went to restart I got the same screen. I've tried to update permissions, rebooted in safe mode. and it still gets hung up on the same screen. I actually left mine overnight and the only way to shut down is to to a "hard" shut down.
