    Mac Book Pro won't go past Apple logo
    Hello Mac Forumers,
    Recently my sister installed a security update on her Mac Book Pro 15". Here are the specs:
    15-inch: 2.53GHz
    Intel Core i5
    4GB Memory
    500 GB Hard Drive
    Intel HD Graphics
    NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M with 256MB

    Ok so now that is all done with. The problem is after she restarted her computer it would go to the Apple logo and a spinning icon would appear. The computer wouldn't go any farther in the booting process after that. Right now I am going to boot from the install cd and repair the permissions of the hard drive and see if that helps any.

    Thanks
    - Kyle

    I think I found a fix for this. I am going to re-install Snow Leopard because it Archive and Installs the new OS with out deleting any information. I hope

    Have you formatted the disk or just gone for the install?

    Ok I got it to work, booted in Target disk mode, transfered her stuff to my external hard drive and re-installed Snow Leopard.
