After my AppleCare ran out, when I needed more RAM, I decided to give the utility a go, at least to get RAM to run at 1333MHz. Back when I had 10.8.2, for some reason the program just wouldn't run. It would bounce on the dock like twice and the close itself. I gave up after that. Anyways a few days I decided to give it another go with 10.8.3; now it runs. No changes except did the OS point update. I get to the part it tells me to shut down and the restart holding the power button. That's not the issue. The issue is when I start it up holding the power button, it gives me the flashes and long tone, and then it boots up normally. I don't get the Apple logo or the update progress bar. Am I doing something wrong? I tried various boot screens and none seem to work. The only thing I had that is different is for some reason my OS X boot is stuck in verbose mode and I can't seem to figure out how to remove that. Any helps or tips would be appreciated!
