My imac slow to startup running osx lion

October 11Hits:1
Advertisement
I've recently upgraded to OSX Lion and now it takes at least 4 minutes for my system to load. It recognises the trackpad and keyboard but it won't allow me to scroll, move or select anything on the screen even though both Bluetooth devices are discoverable and working.
When it does load it works perfectly.
I've tried to reinstall lion (that didn't work - error message) and the usual help instructions. but when i try and reboot and use the Command R it does nothing!
I can't even revert to the previous OSX
please help!!
