    Hi!
    This is my first post, so if I chose the wrong section or something like that, I'm sorry.

    Despite that gray screen with the folder and the question mark at the center is really nice, I really need my computer to boot up.

    I don't know what happened, but since yesterday evening, my computer doesn't load MacOs X 10.6 on my Macintosh HD.

    I did:

    - Safe start up (holding shift key) --> lovely question mark folder;

    - Single User (cmd-s) --> lovely question mark folder;

    - PRAM reset (cmd-alt-P-R) --> reboot repeating the "booooing" sound then --> lovely question mark folder;

    - Install DVD Boot (holding C key) then Disk Repair --> repair successful, then I reboot and 1) boot from CD or 2) lovely question mark folder;

    - Install DVD Boot (holding C key) then Boot Disk Selection --> 1) boot from CD or 2) lovely question mark folder;

    - Install DVD Boot (holding C key) then Instal MacOs X --> install successful, then I reboot and --> lovely question mark folder;

    Now I'm out of ammo... I don't know what to do. S**t.

    Please help me! This is really URGENT!!!!

    See link in my sig although you have tried most of them already. Verify & Repair the HDD from Disk Utility on the DVD.

    Verify and Repair shouldn't harm any of your data but be prepared for the fact that your HDD may be corrupted.
