Reinstalling OS X on a G5 with an nVidia 6800 Ultra
Authored by: johnsawyercjs on Jan 22, '05 09:04:45PM

If the volume at least still boots, you can supposedly recreate the BootX file, using the command

sudo bless -folder "/Volumes/YourVolumeName/System/Library/CoreServices" -bootinfo "/Volumes/YourVolumeName/usr/standalone/ppc/bootx.bootinfo"

(the quote marks let you enter a volume name that contains spaces)

This uses the file "bootx.bootinfo" as the reference file from which to rewrite the BootX file for the particular version of Mac OS you're running. However, if you've copied an OS X installation from one Mac to another, this won't do anything to reassure you that your new BootX file contains the proper code for the Mac model that you do this on, since it will use the copied System's bootx.bootinfo file as its reference. But as "professor" points out below, the BootX file in OS 10.3.x is the same for all 10.3.x revisions.
