    Well, when i try to turn on my mac mini, it just go to the gray apple logo ( ) without the loading little ball, then after some minutes, the loading little ball appears ( ) , and then it open the recovery HD ( ) disk utility. Ive. Got bootcamp in this computer , and windows dont run as well (it just asks for me to insert boot disk, but its already installed.) i already saw some tutorials, and already tryed to do the SMC reset, and the PRAM reset as well, no result. When i run it in verbose mode it just loads, and in the end there is some "error loading drivers " message ( ) and it just go back to the apple logo, and then the same thing happens. I dont have the install CD, if someone needs more details about my mac or anything, just ask,ill post it in this thread. Im really sad, im posting this via my ipad. Thanks.

    Try this and see if it boots:
    If it does you have a bad ktext.

    You will need a OS install disk. If using lion you can make one with a USB flash drive (8GB) and the InstallESD.dmg image. You can find how tos online. You will obviously need a working computer to do this (friend or some such).

    I downloads the lion install and was charged for it. I then sent an email to the address on the purchase confirmation explaining thar I had lion already on my computer and was trying to make an install USB and apple credited the purchase price.
