Hi. I have a Mac Pro (2008) that starts up with the apple logo and the spiining wheel. Then the screen goes blank. I have tried everything at:


Interestingly it does work in safe boot mode (but lots of the functionality isn't there).

Disk utility doesn't find any problems. Hardware check from the original disks is very slow but says the hardware is working.

I even got a new disk and put a clean install of Mountain Lion, and got the same behaviour.


I think I'd like to try various options of what is disabled by safe mode, to find the culprit, but I can't seem to find what that may be.




Mac Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
