I was using my MacBook pro, it required an update, when the update was finished and it went to restart. It began to restart like normal, the chime went, the fan startedup, it went to the grey screen with the apple, the wheel started turning but that's as far as it gets. It won't go further then this screen, the wheel just keeps spining. Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated.

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.2)

The following support article is somewhat outdated. Where it refers to booting from an installation disc, you should boot from your recovery partition (if running 10.7 or later) by holding down the key combination command-R at the chime.
