    Ok so this is the somewhat tricky part. Read this carefully and follow it closely. You have to get the timing just right and the following describes how to do so:

    Step #2: We need to connect the BlackBerry to the Computer via USB cable. But here's where the tricky part comes in with the Nuked BlackBerry. What we want to do is plug in the BlackBerry, and when COM1 switches to say USB-PIN:UNKNOWN we immediately click Next. This catches the BlackBerry and takes it out of the constant reboot cycle and allows you to then reload the Operating System.

    Tip: The USB-PIN:UNKNOWN option will display for a few seconds when the BlackBerry is first connected/flashing its LED in red. With a Nuked BlackBerry, That occurs when the device is in the initial start-up part of it's reboot sequence. The easiest way to get that to happen (vs. waiting for that step in the reboot sequence where you have a tenth of a second to hit Next before you lose your chance) is to simply pull the battery from the BlackBerry. With the battery pulled, connect the BlackBerry to the USB connector and as SOON as you see USB-PIN:UNKNOWN hit Next. You have to be quick still, but using this method you are in control of the timing. From there you can put the battery back in and battery cover back on (Make Sure you install the battery or else when the OS update is completing and the device disconnects from the computer to reboot, it will lose the power provided by the USB connection and you will get an error and have to do it all over again!).

    ** If you don't get it right the first time, try again (unplug from USB, pull battery, connect and hit Next while USB-PIN:Unknown is showing). You have to be fast and the timing is key, so it may take you three or four tries.

    yup.....
    I understand what we are trying to do here.....problem is that the Unknown PIN message never pops up....not even for a 1/10th of a second.....

    The only way I can get anything in that screen is to have the battery in (tried it with and without the battery), and using the modified loader shortcut.

    This will actually display my proper pin

    The key is getting it right before it shows you your PIN. If that doesn't work try starting the process of installingt it once the PIN get's recognize.

    ok so to be clear.......using the modified loader shortcut.....
    put the battery in.....right before it comes up with my PIN hit next...

    I know from the 30 times that I tried before, if I just wait til it shows my pin, it will reboot the phone as soon as I hit next....

    This then tells me that a fatal error has occurred.....

    Maybe this Mac/Vista situation is complicating the matter

    Yes that is correct. Give it a shot and let us know how it goes.
