    My intel based black macbook is stuck on the white screen with Apple logo and the timer thingy going forever and will not take me to account log-in screen.

    I'm willing to erase my HD. How do I go about resetting my macbook or clean install?

    I need help!

    TIA

    put in your mac OS install CD

    turn the unit off

    hold down C key
    press power button

    this will make it boot from disk... you can then format the drive and reinstall

    OP,
    once you boot from the OS install CD, you could try with disk utility first (see if it finds something to repair).
