    Hi guys. Until yesterday all was fine but today my Mac is not booting. I turn it on, get the Apple logo then the spinning circle beneath it and nothing else happens, it just stays there. I've ran recovery HD and performerd a disk and permission check and all was absolutely OK.
    Any suggestions on what it might be? I have a late 2008 MacBook alum. with 4GB of RAM and a 3 months old Momentus XT hard drive.

    Boot it up in verbose mode. What comes up on the screen? Where does it stop? Does it show any I/O errors?
