Hi all. Looking for a little help/advice. I updated to 10.5.7 last night through software update. It downloaded fine...When I went to install, however, a message popped up (in several languages) telling me to shut down using the power button. Now whenever I turn the computer on, I get the gray apple and spinning wheel for about a minute before the circle with the slash replaces it. And then, nothing. I have tried to start in safe mode, reset the PRAM...Nothing seems to be working. Any advice out there before I have to call Apple?

Thanks in advance.
MBP, Mac OS X (10.5.6)
