    In the core of a black hole.
    You didn't even read the link, or can you read all the solutions given by simsaladimbamba in one minute.:p

    Kidding aside, read them first, it might solve the problem.
    Nothing is free nowadays, I think there's a hefty price on those disks.

    As I said read links before, but try this first, boot the Mac holding the shift key at startup, this will result in a safe boot.
    But I doubt it will work.

    What does the text say when you enter verbose mode, this is different than above, hold the Command AND V keys right after you pressed the power key, hold it until a black screen appears.

    Make a picture of it or write the text here, a picture will probably be better because the chance is high it's quite a bit.


    Just a question, why oh why did you choose such a long and confusing User Name, have to think each time I write your name.:p
