MX100 - 128GB SSD installed in iMac not starting up

Hello All!

 

I've just installed a 128GB MX100 SSD into a late 2009 Intel 2.7GHz iMac - 27".

 

I've started up into disk utilities, formatted the drive then downloaded the newset version of Yosmite...

 

Everything seems fine but when I restart the machine it sits there with a grey screen. 

 

I can only get the machine to start in safe-mode, which is impossibly slow.

 

Is there anything obvious that I'm missing please.

 

The format is Mac OS Extended and the Partition is GUID

 

Any pointers will be gratefully received..

 

Many Thanks, Richard
