    My mac Mini is stuck during the login window starting phase of boot up.

    any suggestions?

    I'm still new to macs and not sure how to get it to boot up all the way.

    Thanks

    Is it an Intel mini? Try starting up in Safe Mode and removing the Login Items. :)

    Okay, well what changes have you made to it recently? Can you start in Safe Mode? :)

    Safe Boot will take a while to load as it check the file system. Also, make sure everything is unplugged. :)

    Unplug everything that's not essential. Unplug the network cable, printer etc. Just leave keyboard, mouse and screen plugged in. :)

    Yeah, ten minutes is potentially about right. If it lasts much longer then I'd start worrying.
