Intel iMac HELP!


Recommended Posts

Well, I updated the firmware in my MyBook external HD and then I couldn't boot back into OSX. MyBook is disconnected, doesn't matter. Then I managed to get into the startup utility from the DVDs that came with the computer and began an archive & install; when the power went out. Now I'm getting a Kernel Panic, can't find ANY combination of keyboard commands to work, it always just throws a KP. I can't find any solutions on Apples Knowledge Base and am extremely frustrated.


Anyone have any ideas? I'm seriously thinking of just buying a PC laptop so I can use it for digital photography since this thing seems to have completely shat out on me.


Please, please help... this seriously sucks. The Mac is out of warranty too.

Well they charged $50 for phone support, transferred me to an iMac "Professional" and told me to hold C while booting; which I had already read both online and in my user manual. That didn't work, they said nothing can be done short of taking it to a service center. They then refunded the $50. Ontop of that both of the reps came across as rude... fuck this. Guess I'll be going back to the PC camp.

$50?? jeez


Yep; which I apparently "paid" (it was refunded, as I said) for some "specialist" to tell me to hold down C to boot to the DVD. When that didn't work I was told I'll have to take it to a Apple Service Center; which to me translates to paying out my ass to repair a 3 year old computer.
