I can only boot my iMac 27″ (end of 2009) in safe mode.

The problem started in Lion, when the computer suddenly froze. All I can get is the grey screen, which turns black after a while.

I upgraded (in safe mode) to Mavericks 10.9.2. Still the same problem.

Took away all Launch Agents and Daemons that are not Apple (both in System and User's), done all the permission repairs, reset memory, fsck and turn the plug off the computer. The only thing I was not able to do is the hardware test (for some reason, the command + D to access the internet testing is not working). I have no external devices or cables attached (though on this log I had a printer).

My 2 TB hard drive is divided in 3 partitions. I have got 2 user accounts.

I have tried a few other tricks from the experts in the discussion boards (including removing all preference files that are non apple, remove all non apple extensions), still no way to start up the computer other than safe boot.

I would like to try and turn off bonjour, as it seems like a MDNSResponder Error. But need a green light from any of you experts.

I am posting the latest system log (on this one, I forgot to unplug the printer)

  • For your model the Internet hardware test is not working, check if you have one on your hd, it is in the hidden partition of the hidden recovery. – Ruskes May 5 '14 at 19:17
  • Also, could you cleanup that log by: disconnecting all peripheral devices, disable Airport and Bluetooth, and sharing ect, then run the log again. – Ruskes May 5 '14 at 19:27
  • If you can, try to boot from an external Drive. Or if you have another mac and a FireWire Cable, Target Disc Mode might be interisting to you. Trying to delete launchd's sounds like a very bad Idea. You never know what is needed and what is not. – rwenz3l May 5 '14 at 22:28
  • Is this a log of a normal boot that failed or the log of a safe boot? – thankyour May 6 '14 at 14:40

It seems that for your model the Internet hardware test is not working, so check if you have one on your hd, it is in the hidden partition of the hidden recovery. Also, could you cleanup that log by: disconnecting all peripheral devices, disable Airport and Bluetooth, and sharing ect, then run the log again.

If you can, try to boot from an external Drive. Or if you have another mac and a FireWire Cable, Target Disc Mode might be interesting to you. Trying to delete launchd's sounds like a very bad Idea. You never know what is needed and what is not.

Regarding Shutdown Cause: 3, it is normally related to hard shutdown.

it looks like a (no Apple) software issue in your account. Go to Etrecheck.com, read about etrecheck, download it, run it, and post the list here. It will possibly expose the culprit(s). If the mac will not start, while in Safe Mode again, remove all items from SystemPreferences->Users&Groups->LoginItems. If that is not enough, in the Safe Mode again, open the Applications folder, uninstall antivirus app, or MacKeeper, or other culprits. Then try again.
