Production laptop keeps rebooting (MacBook)
Posted by on 13 May 2015 01:49 PM

This is a KB artilce for an issue where: OS X maverick keeps rebooting constantly (because of network configuration script)

This is an issue with an old image where an automatic script runs (to automatically connect to RU-Secure)  after booting up and logging in and then reboots the computer again after the script has finished running. Because deep freeze is on (not thawed) the script is loaded in the cash and continously runs causing the Machine to endlessly reboot.

To Stop the machine from constantly rebooting thaw deep freeze (with admin credentials) and reboot. 

Then go to: /library/preferences/system configuration

Delete the following files:

Networkinterfaces.plist

Preferences.plist

Restart the computer (the computer will recreate those files with the appropriate network configuration settings)

Freeze the machine by logging into Deep Freeze again and then reboot.

The machine should function normally again after this.
