DOS mode

45 words on

So our new Intel overlords seem to receive a very warm welcome on the Mac. Too warm for my taste. There shouldn’t be files coming with my Mac with the text:

This program cannot be run in DOS mode.

Yet the file /System/Library/CoreServices/boot.efi does exist.

Received data seems to be invalid. The wanted file does probably not exist or the guys at last.fm changed something.
