Mac Pro won't boot
by John Nelson on Jul 2, 2013 at 3:05:25 pm
I was playing with the read/write thingies and clicked the + on the main/mac hd. Then I 'OK'd' it to allow access, or something like that (I think). Then the 'progress bar' showed up and started doing its thing, which I mistakenly thought was a 'good thing'. While waiting for it to finish I went on to photoshop, iTunes, etc. Suddenly a window came up with something about not being able to read/write such and such program because it was improperly installed and to contact such and such for updates. I clicked OK and found another window right behind it... And another... There must have been a million. I clicked until my index finger became calloused. After if finally finished I thought maybe I did something wrong so I rebooted. That's when I knew I had done something wrong and which is why I'm now typing on my MBP...
It boots as far as the chime and the gear that never stops spinning, that's it.
I have time machine on an external and would like to know if there may be some way to use an earlier backup and how to get to it from my MBP?

The time machine restore seems to have worked...but...not on my Adobe products. Upon trying to open any of them; PS CS3, AE CS4, FL CS3, DW CS4, they all came up with error screens saying the licensing has stopped working. After trying to uninstall or install the error message says startup error, required resources are missing. Been on the phone with Adobe yesterday for almost an hour without any luck. Really looking for some answers. Thanks.
