    Good evening, When I try to start it up it only stays at the apple with the loading thing under it. I tried to boot in safe mode and nothing happens. I tried everything from trying to boot from usb, but my hard drive doesn't have enough space. I also tried to delete the hard drive, but it said something about it being locked. What are my options?

    Have you booted up from a Snow Leopard Disc? What does it say when you try to erase the HD?
