My mac book pro has a booting problem. It takes forever at the apple logo and after sometime the apple logo vanishes but the loading icon still continues for a while. Which continues please advice

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.5)

    if full boot is under 1 minute - it can be, depends on lot of things. Over 1 min will be unusual.


    anyway boot from recovery, repair drive, repair permissions, reboot, clean some space on HD (like empty trash or trash something), reboot and see what'll happen
