    Exclamation Macbook Pro Not Booting After Update
    Hey guys,
    I installed the latest OS X Lion update to get all of the iCloud features but now my Macbook Pro 2007 won't even boot anymore! Whenever I click the power button, the apple logo flashes, but then a grey loading bar appears underneath. After the bar gets about 1/5 of the way there, the computer just shuts off. I have tried resetting the PRAM and disconnecting everything but the power cord, but it has yet to fix the problem. Does anybody else have this issue? Can anybody help me? I need my mac and it has important documents on it.
    Thanks in advance

    Try rebooting to the Recovery partition and run Disk Utility. Hold down the Command + R key as soon as you hear the chime. After it boots, select Disk Utility, highlight the hard drive, run verify and repair.
