    Exactly what files did you transfer over? You sure you didn't overwrite system files? If you did, you may need to reinstall OS X.

    no-i transferred about 10gb of audio samples from my desktop into the users>documents folder (where all my docs etc are kept)

    oh, and i just hit alt, whilst it was booting up, and selected to boot in oSX, then it came up with a GREY CIRCLE WITH A LINE THROUGH THE CENTRE, where the white apple logo usually is on the grey start up screen ?? Whats that all about?

    will the restore disks that i have help?
