Can't get past grey apple screen!
My iMac started taking forever to boot - 15 to 20 minutes. Thinking my hard drive was going bad (bad sounds), I replaced the hard drive. Boot from Leapard Disc and installed. Upon restart won't boot up past the grey apple screen with spinning wheel. I've booted from Leapard Disc and run disc utility - repair permissions and repair disc - both checked out ok.
Could it be something other than my hard drive that was dying? Ram?
Thanks for any help!
