Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So my girlfriend just upgraded to Snow Leopard, and a day after using it has received a gray screen on boot-up. Apparently this is the equivalent of Window's Blue Screen? I'm not really a mac person, but she went against my advice to wipe the hard drive and install it fresh, instead upgrading from Tiger.
I've done a little research, and it seems as if this can happen by installing onto a copy of Tiger that has downloaded updates but has yet to install them.
Ok, bummer, but is there anything she can do short of wiping the hard drive to revert back to Tiger, and try again? Try again the proper way, hopefully.
In addition, what is the process for formatting the hard drive when a gray screen pops up? Is it a simple boot from the Snow Leopard disc and choose format? I've never done an OS install on a mac before, so any advice is appreciated.
