I'm investigating as we speak, but I just Software Updated to the latest Java patch and Safari 4.0.1 and now my Mac Pro shuts down after the white Apple icon comes up on startup.

WTF is pretty high on my list of thoughts right now

Your signature is suspiciously ironic.

Looks like the Mac Pro was in the middle of the BT firmware update when it paniced.

End Result is my Boot Disk's Superblock was hosed.. and not sure what else.

Had to take it out of the Mac Pro and Diskwarrior it off my MBP just to clean it up and mount it.

Got a new HD and restored off my Time Machine disk..

My MBP did the update OK.. so maybe the Bluetooth firmware update killed the Mac Pro.

Haven't seen anyone else have the problem yet.. but lightning seems to like me alot ..
