Re: Stuck on gray Apple logo on bootup - 03-31-2009, 04:09 PM
I get the same issue on the first boot that I try from the internal SSD after I install OS X. It gets to the gray screen and just sits there.
Try getting to the boot: prompt and booting with the -v -f parameters. I have to do this once every time I do a new install of OS X on my mini. After that it boots fine almost all the time. I did have to do it one more time on my latest OS load, but since then it is been fine.+
I do not know the why of doing this, it just seems to work to get me past the grey apple screen.

I have USB legacy support enabled.
Thanks for the help, booting with the -v -f options seems to have remedied the issue, so far at least.
(i realize that force shutting down the computer was the incorrect way, but it was the only way i could consistently boot up without it freezing)
