    that brought up a refresh button my hard drive and an arrow key. i chose the hard drive and advanced. now its sitting on the grey screen loading.

    Its definitely getting hung up on something. Honestly, since you just installed the OS, I'd just erase it and try again.

    i bought it used and had to borrow the leopard disk to update it. should i just find the tiger restore disk online? or is there a way i could restore it without the disk?
