Aaarghhh! 4/5 of the way through doing a TimeMachine first backup on my newly created 750GB hard drive and TM hangs. Restart and the MBP won’t boot. Apple comes up, rotating thingy rotates and rotates and gets no further.

Safe boot does much the same – gets past disk check and then its stuck.

Now to try Single user mode and Diagnostics boot mode.
