    so i have a macbook and it doesnt boot (it stays on the apple loading screen, and loads all day long)

    secondly i dont have the disks that came with the mac!

    how do i recover it? or how do i make it work again? i dont mind reformatting.

    is there anyway i can remove the hdd and connect it to my windows pc using usb and then install a fresh copy of os x? or repair the hdd using a windows program?

    also my mac has a firmware password! so cant do those keys that u press on start up lol

    Your girlfriends place
    Take a look on here. See if it will boot into single user mode. Verbose should give ya an idea of what's going on.

    Single User and Verbose startup
