- The flashing globe icon means you are trying to start from a netboot server that doesn't exist or is offline.

I have no idea what that mean and how i could fix it, any ideas?

go to preferences-> startup disk->change it back to local startup instead of network.

The solution is here: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=31355

Sounds like you just need to use Startup Disk system preference and change your startup disk from Network to the Local Drive.

Hope that helps!
