I have an MBP with 10.5 and XP on boot camp. The other day, I restarted my computer attempting to load OS X but to no avail. At first I got the apple load screen for an indefinite time, then I forced a restart and it went to a blue screen that flashed every few seconds to a slightly darker blue screen with the loading icon. This doesn't go anywhere either. I used disk utility, fcdsk, and reset the SMU but nothing works. Any ideas?

Does Safe Mode work?

Have you added or changed any hardware or software? Any software updates?

All I did was download a patch for BF2 in boot camp...I will try safe mode now.

Safe mode does not work. The apple icon and loading circle appear indefinitely. Should I just reinstall the system?

This comes to mind about the blue screen. It maybe the problem. If not, follow option B.

I fixed the problem with an archive install. Thanks for the assistance though.
