Boot the computer using the image. On Windows based systems you can run a demo (a mock install) to verify compatibility with the hardware. If you are satisfied you may install it alongside Windows (dual boot), or alone. There should be something similar for macs (I know close to nothing on those machines).

Once I put in the password the desktop does not

I am going to have you take your Mac into Safe Mode to see if we can't remove a possible folder(s) that may be affecting your Mac's start up function.

Try these steps:

• Reboot your Mac
• Upon restarting your Mac, press the Shift key.
• Hold the Shift key until you see a White Screen with Gray Apple icon and eventually a spinning gear.
• When you see the Spinning gear, release the Shift key.
• Allow the Mac to continue booting up. Also this may take a little while
(NOTE: this may take anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes to load to the Safe mode screen depending on the performance of your Mac, but if it exceeds this time, shutdown your Mac and try just once more. It may have just frozen up the first time around for you.)

• You are going to enter the Safe Mode (which looks like your main desktop environment - the only difference is certain start up items are disabled.)

• Once within the Desktop in Safe Mode
• From the Finder Menu, click Go> Go to Folder
• Type in this line: /System/Library/StartupItems

• This path, is going to take you to the System Library folder which has all of your Mac OS X Startupitems.

• Remove all of those folders to the Trash.

*Reboot your Mac normally and see if you can access your normal User desktop environment.

Let me know if this helps.

Insert your Leopard OS disc and startup your mac while holding down the C key to have it startup using the OS on the disk. When it's loaded, DONT do the install, but go to the desktop menu and launch Disk Utilities and do a disk repair and permissions repair... you should see a good improvement on startup

Have you tried to boot to the factory disks???? If not try to boot from Disk 1 and press and hold the C button on power up and if you get to the screen that asks for language. If this boots up to that point it appears you have an OS issues and you can do an archieve install which will allow you to keep your old users and settings let me know if you get to this point.

The most likely cause is a bad hard drive or a corrupted file. Start up the computer in safe mode. (Hold down the shift key while starting) that will force the macbook to run extended tests on the startup drive. If it finds any errors it may be able to correct them. If that fails use the startup disk that came with your laptop and start from it (hold down the C key during start up) that will allow you to use disc utility to try repairing your hard drive.
If the macbook fails to boot to the DVD or into safe mode. Try reseating the RAM chips. Hope some of that helps.

Start by doing a system restore, then, if that doesn't work, run a repair with your recovery or operating system disc.

Hi John
Can be because of a couple of things. Normally it is a system error.

If you boot your mac up from your original OS installation disk you might be able to repair the fault with apples disk utility.

Failing that you'll have to re-install the OS.
