Have had this for a while now, when switched on i get the chime, apple logo and then goes to a blue/grey screen with the spinning gear. also at this point i get the mouse cursor which comes and goes.
Have tried all the safe mode and verbose mode.
Verbose just produces the screen shot i have attached, i left running through the night and comes up with the same message but with different time stamp
I did try and boot from my Leopard 10.5 cd but just went straight through to the grey screen.
Any help would be really appreciated
Have you seen this Apple note on gray screen/spinning wheel boots?
