I have a late 2008 MBP I update from 10.7.4 to 10.7.5 and it refused to boot, although it would safe boot. So I tried a clean 10.7.5 install still would not boot. Again happy to boot into safe mode.


Next tried a clean 10.8 install again it will only boot into safe mode.


Booting into verbose mode it fails at the bluetooth, so i tried disabling the bluetooth extensions, still no joy.


Any ideas?
