Need urgent help!


I'm writing this on Windows using Boot Camp on my Macbook.

My Mac does not want to go into Mac OSX 10.5.3

It says various programs did not launch, such as dock, finder, iCal helper, and others. I can only get to the wallpaper, I can't see the menu bar, dock, or icons.

I also don't have a backup :(

Is there anything I can do?


Mac of the SubGenius! :-)
When going to the Mac OS X partition, hold down Shift so that it boots into Safe Mode and see if you can get a working desktop that way. If so, then go ahead and install the 10.5.2 Combo Updater that way.


Do you know if those small HDDs that are between 160-320GB and powered by USB are as good as a larger external one?

I would like to have 200GB [mac partition] for Time Machine, and a 50GB windows partition for taking my friends music/school.
