Things have gone awry with my OS X. I ran First Aid from the OS 9 CD which showed a serious error during MountCheck, first aid could not fix it. tried again with no luck. Now I can run 9.2.2 alright, but after re-installing OSX 1.03 from CD I get a few lines of code over the happy mac and the final line says "hanging here".
Any thoughts on how to get X back?
Might be due to external hardware, try disconnecting any external devices except your keyboard and mouse, and try booting to OS X. If it then will boot without a kernel crash, then that device may be bad or need a driver installed. OR, your HD may be starting to fail, does Disk first aid still fail?
Serendipity is a lucky guess !
