Whoa! Thanks for the warning. You may want to make that a permanent thing up top of this thread.

The steps to correctly upgrade from 10.2.X to Panther, 10.3

1.) Boot into single user and run fsck -y.

2.) Reboot out of single user

3.) Start up Disk Utility and repair permission on the drive.

4.) Reboot and run 10.3 installer disk 1 (machine will reboot).

5.) Run 10.3 installer (this should happen automatically).

6.) Insert disks in the order asked. The machine will reboot at the end of the install sequence. After reboot insert any disks asked for.

7.) At the end of the install sequence reboot the machine and run fsck-y. If it won't run, try fsck -f

8.) Run Disk Utilities and at the end reboot computer.

9.) If there are problems (finder quits etc.) run Disk Utilities again and repair the permissions again. I had to repair permissions 3 times in a row to get the OS stable.

10.) Make sure Default Folder X is uninstalled or disabled or version 1.9 or you will have major problems.

At startup hold down the Apple key, option key and S key. This will launch single user mode. After about 30 seconds the prompt will appear and type fsck -y (yes there is a space between k and y). The system will check directories and such and if it report OK, reboot the computer. If it said it repaired the HD then run fsck -y again. Keep running it until HD OK appears. If after 6 to 10 attempts it does not report HD OK you have serious problems. Run Disk Warrior and repair the drive.

Yes, two separate functions. That's why you have to run both operations before and after the upgrade.

I wasn't clear on this. When you're in Single User mode and you need to reboot, just type reboot at the prompt.

Jeff,

Did you run a clean install, an archive and install, or just an update installation?

I've had less (almost none) problems using Clean Install. However, my laptop didn't have enough room to do a Clean Install, so I had to do an update. Thanks for catching that. Clean Install is almost always the most trouble free method of installing a new OS.

Hmmm... maybe I should wait until Apple fixes this bug before I buy. I don't like paying for software that has not been tested. 10.2.8, Quicktime 6.4. What is Apple doing? Are they just trying to get things "out the door" as soon as possible? In my experience it's always been painless to upgrade the OS, and there was no danger of rendering the entire thing helpless.

This is not an Apple bug. Many of these 3rd party software applications do not follow Apple Developer guidelines. The end results is that when Apple upgrades, the hack bites the developers (and users) in the *ss.

Hee hee!

I am tempted to get the educational version ($69) or should I say have my wife (a teacher) get it.
