    Apple Hardware test doesnt work. not with 'D' alone and not with option-D. . the same issue with  also not cmd-r and the recovery ( option key ) doesnt help. safe mode is working and the Mac-HD apper to be o.k. someone have idea???

     

    When i try the Cmd-R it seems to get my command, Apple logo is gone and the gray ampty screen stays but the gray screen is stuck and nothing happans exept the 'thinking' logo ( colord ball ). i tried this for vey long period.

    the same problem after doing recovery ( option key ).i click the recovery 10.8 and its start thinking and stuck.

    Apple Hardware test doesnt work. not with 'D' alone and not with option-D ( with both internet cable and wi-fi ). i also downloded recovery for an external usb and still nothing.

    when i pushed Cmd, Option, P and R again i found my self in the gray screen with thinking logo.

    the only thing that i can do is to boot into safe mode ( shift at startup ).

    I am running Mountain lion 10.8.5 on Imac 27, i7 2009.

    When I try the Cmd-R it seems to get my command, Apple logo is gone and the gray empty screen stays but the gray screen is stuck and nothing happens except the 'thinking' logo ( colored ball ). I tried this for very long period.

    The same problem after doing recovery ( option key ).I click the recovery 10.8 and its start thinking and stuck.

    Apple Hardware test doesn't work. not with 'D' alone and not with option-D ( with both Internet cable and WI-Fi ). I also downloaded recovery for an external USB and still nothing.

    when I pushed Cmd, Option, P and R again I found my self in the gray screen with thinking logo.

    the only thing that I can do is to boot into safe mode ( shift key at startup ).

    Your machine may be so old it requires the original OS X discs that it shipped with. Carefully read the instructions for AHT again and you will see what I mean.

    yes, I thought about it. the problem is that my cd driver doesn't work for more than two years now and I use an external cd driver

    This just happened to me with update 10.9.3. Tried many things and finally it worked. I downloaded mavericks again, but after getting stuck in the end of installation, I restarted it myself. I had unplugged every device conected to it and even took the bateries from mouse and keyboard (I also turn down wifi on other devises, just in case). Then I started it on safe mode and it worked.
