    I have logged onto my new mac and gone through the setup and was copying some files from a USB port when the copying crashed.
    I held down the shutdown key and turned it off and now i turn it on and the setup is on the screen again and everytime i go through the setup it just goes back to the start of it.

    please help!
    anyone ideas

    I'd say reinstall the OS something got screwed up with formatting sounds like.
