    Well I updated to 10.2 from 10.1.5 and then from that to 10.2.1. Now it boots and everything except it doesn't load the desktop. It boots with that status screen, goes through everything, then gets to the blue background and then normally the finder would load. But it doesn't.

    So I tried formatting and reinstalling 10.2 with 10.2.1 immediately after that. I changed nothing and I still get the same thing. Anyone know anything about this problem? It's extremely annoying and I can't find anything on the apple discussion boards.

    no idea. if you have any 3rd party hardware installed you might try removing it.

    Yeah, I was thinking about that since it can't be software if I did a clean update after a reinstall.

    Also there weren't any available firmware updates for my comp.

    I have an orangemicro scsi card that I've never been able to get to work. I'll try yanking that.

    I'm pretty sure it's not my ram either. If it worked with every other version of os x then it should work with 10.2.1

    Have you tried launching the Finder via the terminal (I think it's somewhere in System/Core Services)?

    BTW, IMHO the Finder in 10.2 sucks, it's very unstable especially when using SMB shares.

    I reformatted again and I'm just using 10.2.0 right now.

    I also lost my databases. My backups too since they were on a different partition but same drive :(

    My page is msn.com. I don't know why because I never read it. I've just been too lazy to change it since it loads fast and lets me know if my net connection is up or down.
