Dreaded Blue Screen of Death mars some Leopard installs

Quote:
Apple support drones are getting an earful from Mac users who are getting the dreaded Blue Screen of Death while trying to update to the latest and greatest version of OS X.

A thread in Apple's official support forum titled Installation appears stuck on a plain blue screen had more than 300 posts when this article was last updated. A large percentage of the writers report getting a persistent blue screen after installing Leopard and then rebooting for the first time. These early-adopters have no option but to forcibly shut the machine down.

LOL, looks like the BSoD hits the Mac in a fury.

What next? A BSoD on linux? Oh wait, that already happens... the BSOD screensaver on suse9-1CD...

This only happens if you try to do an in-place upgrade from a Tiger system that has the third-party hack "Application Enhancer" by Unsanity installed, as the hack is left installed after the upgrade is complete but it is not compatible with Leopard so it gets stuck on the plain blue screen (the one you see before the boot screen appears). It can be solved by removing the offending files from single-user mode though.

Exactly, I don't use any of these hacks and my upgrade from Tiger to Leopard went flawlessly. It did stay at that blue screen for some time though so I began thinking something was not alright, but then it proceeded just fine.
