    I am currently running OSX Mavericks on a Late 2009 iMac. I have noticed lately that every time I restart my computer, I get the "bong" sound followed by a grey screen and spinning beach. My computer will stay this way (for hours) until I restart the computer again and put it into safe mode.
    Once my computer boots into safe mode, I am then able to restart the computer again and it boots normally. I have run disk utility and it says my hard drive is fine and I have run onyx as well.
    Has anyone else run into this? Any ideas as to what is going on?

    Thanks.

    Boot into Recovery Mode and reinstall without erasing. See if that helps.
