    Sometime my Mac Pro 4,1 boots in verbose mode (or single user mode, I don't really know the difference, but it asks to type 'exit' to boot the system).

    This it not always, but it happens often.
    Should I be worried?
    Can I do something to make it always boot as it has to do?

    You could run a disk check and verify the permissions on your boot drive.

    You do this via Disk Utility in your Applications folder.

    I'll give that a try, however I don't believe it will help. Because It's just a fresh OS X installation, and in fact I had the same problem also with another installation...

    But we never know... :)

    ----------

    In the Console I've read the following lines (of course lots of other lines above, but they didn't seem too interesting...)
    Is this helpful?

    Code:

    Looks like the disk from that code....It may be failing...I guess pulling it and testing in a caddy might give you some more info, but that's what it looks like.
