MacBook Air won't start
I just installed updates, let it restart (was not plugged in but it had full charge) and it sits on grey apple screen and spins. I shut off and plugged in, same thing. Please assist. my normal tech support is not in the house.

Hold down option during boot and select the recovery HD as your boot disk.

If you have a Tm backup, I'd restore from that. Otherwise, do you have all your stuff backed up somewhere?
