User setup menu won’t show up after fresh installation on 2006 Mac Pro

Hello every one,

I’m trying to do a fresh installation of lion (10.7.5) on my 2005/2006 Mac Pro, but so far no luck. Here is what I did:

1. Download 10.7.5 online and burn it into a dvd bootable disk.
2. Boot the machine from dvd media I just created.
3. Erase the hard drive and format it as macOS journal version.
4. Start installation.

The installation is finished successfully, but when machine is rebooted, the welcome setup menu never shows up, instead, a mouse cursor is there forever (it can be moved around when touching the mouse, and it never hangs), but screen background is remained black. Tried to do this installation on a separate hard drive, samething.

Does anyone know what could be wrong here?

Many thanks!

How to reset PRAM on a Mac

  1. Shut down your computer and disconnect all USB devices (except wired keyboards).
  2. Press the power button to turn on your Mac.
  3. Immediately press and hold the Option, Command, P, and R keys on your keyboard. ...
  4. Hold down these keys for 20 seconds, during which time your Mac will appear to restart.

UPDATE: Your installation download may have been corrupt. I'd Buy a Snow Leopard DVD from eBay, this was the last Stand Alone DVD that Apple offered.

@mayer - Hello mayer, I don't have apple's keyboard, tried using windows key + alt+p+r on my window's keyboard, but no luck to reset PRAM successfully. I will see if I can borrow or get apple's keyboard later. Will keep you posted.




Do you have another Mac?

Since you cant do the solution @mayer provided you could try installing it on the same drive on another Mac :-)


@hellomacos - Yeah, that worths trying, will let you know once I have any new update. Thanks!



Good luck :-)


@mayer - Hello mayer, got an Apple keyboard and performed PRAM set successfully, however, the issue is still there, setup menu won't show up..., any other thoughts? Thanks!
