i have a 27 imac 3.4 i7 with 8 gb ram and a SSd. I usually keep it on and sleep at night. for the first time in about a week or so, i decided to shut down. I came home today, and i get stuck at the white screen with the apple logo and the spinning wheel. I have tried to use the disk utilities on the lion restore partition (running 10.7.2 btw) verified disk, that was ok, repaired permissions. reset pram. ran apple hardware test. still nothing Ran in verbose mode and stuck at a prompt, and to be honest, can't really understand all that it says there. any ideas what i can do? other that restore ?
