Apple Confirms Some Leopard 'Blue Screens,' Posts Fix

Apple is confirming that some installations of its Leopard operating system have left a "Blue Screen of Death," and recommends the OS be reinstalled or installers use "line commands" to get the systems booting properly. After a much-anticipated launch on Oct. 26, user reviews of Leopard began surfacing on the Internet by the hundreds over the weekend. But as the night and morning wore on Saturday, a greater number of reviews and comments on Web forums began complaining of the blue screen, and said the problem left their Mac-based computers "bricked."

On its own web site, Apple has acknowledged the complaints and responded with its suggested solution. The news-social network Digg.com began linking to Apple's posting early Sunday morning. "After completing an upgrade installation of Leopard and restarting the computer, a 'blue screen' may appear for an extended period of time," Apple wrote.
