View Full Version : Upgrade Status Unknown, Stuck at Splash Screen

September 4th, 2010, 10:29 PM
I attempted to update my system to 10.10 this morning. I waited for a few minutes, but then it said it was going to take about 1.5 hours to install the updates. So I went outside and mowed my yard. When I returned, my computer was on, but asleep. When I tried to wake it, the monitors just stayed black. So I hit the reset button. Now I am stuck at the splash screen. Is there anyway I can repair this installation?

I tripple boot my desktop (Win7, OSX, and Ubuntu) and use Chameleon. Because I use Chameleon, I had previously disabled the Grub menu, by setting the timeout to 0. I am unable to get the Grub menu to show up by pressing Shift. I can't press 'e' to bypass the splash screen either.
