Once booted from the install disk run Tools->Disk Utility->Disk First Aid:Repair Permissions, then Disk Repair. Try to boot. If it wont do a safe (shift) boot. Since it will load in a different mac you could have an extension problem, a corrupt font or preference. Safe boot should get you around those. Make a new account and set it to boot to that. If that works you should use Migration Assistant to move your files, then delete the corrupt user.

Hold the shift key down right after you press the power button, until you see the spinning gear, (wheel) then release.

Wayne - Please use the Add Comment link for comments/questions/updates - this space is for answers only. I'm not tracking your comment... is this dialog from the new account, or, from your Apple Hardware Test Disk? If it's not from the AHT run that 2 or 3x and record the codes/dialogs it reports.
