Hotkeys For Mac Restart Command

  • Power on - startup chime: During the Power-On Self Test the hardware on yor Macs motherboard is tested (i.e. processor, RAM, LAN + WLAN, Firewire, USB). If you see a slowly pulsing LED or hear beeps every five seconds, you have a RAM problem. If everything is okay, the startup chime is heard.
  • Light grey display: Now the Mac flicks on its display and looks for the 'Boot.efi' boot loader. It is stored on a hidden GUID partition on all bootable hard drives, the exact whereabouts are stored in the Macs PRAM by the 'Start volume' preference pane or the Boot Camp assistant. If it weren't there, the Mac would first look at all other bootable drives (internal hard drives, DVD, USB, network). If it were unsuccessful, you'd then see either a circle with a slash or a 'folder with a question mark'.
  • Apple logo: The boot loader now loads the Darwin Linux, the MAC OS X basis, and the Apple logo appears. Kernel and kernel extensions (KEXT) are loaded, and they take over the next steps.
  • Spinnig gear (or 'spinning wheel') below the Apple logo: The launchd daemon starts all processes necessary for Mac OS X.
  • Blue screen: Now that launchd has started the WindowServer needed for the Graphical User Interface (GUI) your Mac starts to look like a Mac.
  • Log-in window: Now that launchd has started the Loginwindow.app either the log-in screen is shown or the pre-defined used is being logged-in automatically.
  • Finder: After logging in the log-in items you set in your account preferences are loaded. If you experience problems, i.e. repeated software crashes of any of your log-in items, you can use Safe Start: Press and hold the Shift key immediately after clicking log-in or AFTER the spinning gear shows up (if you hit Shift too soon you will end in Safe Boot mode). Safe Start deactivates the user's log-in items.
