I am a bit of a Mac n00b, well in repairing one. I have a G5 iMac with Tiger 10.4.11 that won’t boot into normal mode (After apple gray loading screen, screen turns blue to boot up but then changes to a slighltly different shade and alll there is is the cursor). Safe boot yes.

I went through an entire list of steps from both apple's site and http://forums.osxfaq.com/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=7269. I then decided to try reloading the machine, which is supposed to be a very rare occurrence. But the exact same thing is happening. But during the reboot after install. I had to finish the installation in safe boot.

Any suggestions?

Thanks guys.
