    Macpro 2011.
    10.7.?
    16gb ram
    500gb


    Hi I was using macpro fine at 12pm. 1pm I get home load up and it's stuck on grey screen with apple logo and grey spinning wheel.

    I get it to spinning globe screen and its was progressing but was not sure what I was even doing.

    I've not knocked it since and it should be fine?

    I pressed Opt on start up and it gave me a disc recovery option. Pressed that and it's been loading for 10 minutes with nothing.

    Also just pressed Opt again and it gave me two drives. My name hard drive and recovery??

    Can someone please advise.

    Thanks.

    Do you me Mac Pro, the desktop computer, or MacBook Pro the laptop?

    There was no 2011 Mac Pro model. MacPro 5,1 was released in 2011 and updated in 2012.

    It's a laptop. So it could be 2010 or 12 in that case.

    How large is the display screen?

    What year did you buy it?

    This info can be important.

    Hi. It's 13". I bought it second hand in 2013.

    I should note I've had an issue in the past. For one reason or other the start up files got corrupt after my battery died and the wire was pulled out. I had to use disc warrior to re install. Silly I know but I've not replaced battery. I've just been using the power source. Maybe this has something to do with it. This is strange as there was no signs of anything about to break like this.

    I don't ha e wifi at home only tethering on phone. Should I get to a wifi and do some kind of internet recovery?

    I'd say your hard drive may have just died on you.

    That second link looks tech. I'm no wizz on computers.
    I was going to do a internet recovery soon. Will this work?
    Could it be start up files.

    Hey guys. I've ran verify disk and it said it was successful. Tried to start up as normal but it just left me in the grey load screen with apple logo and spinning wheel. Then tried to open in safe mode (shift button on boot) and it gave me a load bar but then just a constant grey screen with spinning wheel. Please any ideas??

    I only have short time at a friends house on his wifi now.

    I have tried every step on here bar 8 and 9 and nothing. I seem to do them then it gets on the apple grey screen with loading wheel and that's it.

    Does this suggest hard drive failure??
    Can someone please help here.

    If you booted into Recovery Mode and ran Repair Disk while clicked on Macintosh HD in the upper left window, and it did not find any errors, then your hard drive is good. You could try re-installing the operating system from Recovery Mode. This won't delete any of your data.
