Thread: Macbook Pro won't reboot
10-09-2008, 11:25 PM #1Macbook Pro won't reboot
My Macbook Pro is stuck on the bootup screen with the Apple - the little dial keeps going round and round - and it's been doing this for twenty minutes. This happened after I had to interrupt an update, which froze the whole computer. Is there a way to safe boot in a mac? If so - how?
I'm not able to locate my Leopard disks - either 10.4 or 10.5. Any help is appreciated.
Thank you!I am gnomishninja's clever signature.

Safe boot by holding the shift key on startup, until the spinning sign appears.
Note that safe boot will take a LONGER time, so be patient.
