    It looks to me like the HDD is bad... Do these iMacs use SATA drives?

    Most likely a failing hdd
    Run diskwarrior on your hard drive

    Good point. If the hard drive is brand new like you say, you might have gotten a bad one.

    Exchange it.

    sorry my guess is as good as yours ,i am no good in log reading ,but
    no recalls from Apple , apple doesn't do recalls they do repair extension scheme's if you are lucky ,and lucky for apple most people never find out about these scheme's, they all ran out years ago for the iMac g5 , but i too guess its the hdd
