Can anyone help me? I recently got my Mac CC with Mystic upgrade. I added 128mb RAM and the system was running fine with version 7.5. I just received a new in box version of OS 8.1. I took out the CD and did a clean install. Now when the machine boots up I get the following error message.
Sorry, a system error occured.
To temporarily turn off extensions, restart and hold down the shift key. I do as it asks and it starts to reload with the extensions disabled message, but then goes back to the above error message again.
I then tried to hold the spacebar down to bring up the extension manager like the 8.1 book says. Alas, it never comes up. The OS loads and gives me that above error message again.
At this point i figured I'd just try re-installing a clean copy. I follow the instructions and hold down the C key to boot off of the cd, but either the CD drive just opens and the OS boots then gives the error above, or nothing happens with the CD and the OS gives me the above error.
Can anyone help me figure out what the problem is?
