    My MacBook pro takes forever to boot!
    It's stuck at the apple logo boot screen with the loading wheel for what seems forever.
    And I don't get past the logon screen.

    The guys at the Apple Store told me to do a archive and install so I did that; still, it doesn't work.

    What should I do?

    I JUST had the hard drive replaced (like less than 2 weeks ago)

    Possible Solutions/Issues:

    Clear the PRam

    Faulty Ram (Diagnose with Built in Hardware Test/ Hold "D" key at startup)

    enable verbose mode and see what is hanging things up

    Try those.

    I did the hardware test (both the short and long one) and it said everything was O.K.

    I reset the PRAM and nothing happened.

    I tried Verbose mode but I don't know how to read the information in order to see what the problem is.

    Yuck =(

    EDIT: Now it's giving me the whole circle with a strike thing.
