A friend of mine's MacBook Pro would not boot properly.

The grey screen would come up and the spinning disc would just keep going around.


After a little online research, I restarted it in safe mode, but the progress bar was not moving.

I then restarted it, but holding down the Shift + Command + V so that we could see the progress.


It went into almost an MS DOS window, showing all the different boot ups.....it now seems to be running a seemingly endless booting up/disc scan process, still in that MS DOS type window.


How long should it take?!?!  It's been running for ages already....must be half an hour or more already.....
