Hello guys,

10.8.4 installation made my computer on a constant restarting loop even after pram and smc reset.
If I do recovery disc system reinstall could you please tell me what I lose on my computer? Or will it just reinstall the system and I wont lose anything?

Please help before I do something stupid :)))
Thank you

Yes but first make sure there are no problems with the startup disk, see my post in your other thread.
