I'm writing this via Safari on the Recovery Partition. I just got my brand new iMac out of the box, and set up. The specs are in my signature. I had it transfer my data from my old iMac, running 10.7.2. I had it transfer everything except for the settings from the old iMac. It finished, I was then looking at a gray screen (It's the wallpaper you see at login) for 5 minutes. I disconnected everything from the iMac. I did get a warning the drive was disconnected. I did a forced shutdown, and rebooted. I am now stuck at the white screen with the Apple logo and a cog. I can boot to the Recovery HD just fine. I did a Verify and Repair disk, and it said it was fine. I cannot boot to Safe Mode either. Please help me! EDIT: As soon as I took the wrapper off, I added 8GB of RAM, before the first boot. Should I try taking the RAM (It's Crucial RAM) out?
