Hi all. Girlfriends 2010 unibody Macbook Pro. Was running 10.6 SL just fine, until last night, went sluggish and then kernal panic. I did a reset and it worked just fine but Chrome was crashing out. Today I went into safe mode and removed Chrome, and switched her back to Safari at her request, when i handed it back to her, it suddenly kernal panicked again and then refused to boot. I tried to boot using the C key with the SL disc in the drive and the drive would spin UP then down and do this all the time. I've also followed a guide on resetting the pvram? and done this to noavail I tried to do an online restore, yet by owning ML for my iMac I am shoved into Mavericks which we don't own, so cannot complete!! thanks APPLE! Soo using the CMD+R i was able to get into disk utilities and wipe her personal work data from the internal HD again at her request. So to recap. Tried the resets to no avail. Tried to boot from the original SL dvd's no avail Tired to use online restore, again no avail. all I end up with is at a grey screen, with the Apple logo and a spinning wheel. Any help anyone can give would be great, I want to avoid taking this into the shop.
