Stoled startup in white screen with the grey apple.
The unit had its hard drive formatted, after which it now freezes when booting from CD. The unit powers on with a chime, CDs spin up, but the laptop never progresses past the white screen with the grey apple. I had hoped to perform a few more tests on this unit before listing it, but I do not have the expertise. I reset PRAM, SMC without success. When holding down "Option" during boot, I found the trackpad and mouse button to function as they should. In verbose mode its freeze in ACPI bad platform. The firmware restoration cd 1.4 not bot.
Is this a good question?
