I have just bought a 15in Mac Book Pro.  Latest OS.  Applied all Software Updates & 2011 MS Office.  Somehow FIPS is being installed and it hangs the whole OS.  Genius Bar has reinstalled the OS adn I can get it to boot.  Left it on overnight to back-up to Timecapsule.  Now, it won't boot again due to FIPS installed.  I know this because I put it into Verbose Mode and it hangs at FIPS.


Any ideas as to why?  The only solution that the Genuis Bar says is to re-install.  This looks to be a Catch-22 at this point.


Any ideas?
