I just bought and set up my brand new iMac. I used Time Machine from my old Hackintosh to back up all my files. I restored that on my iMac, and everything worked fine. I just restarted my Mac, and now...it just won't get past the loading screen. Safe mode won't even start. I am not sure what to do at this point, and I am afraid to contact Apple for help. Please help. I am not sure what to do.

Create a bootable USB stick and boot in recovery partition.
Just download mac OS Sierra 10.12 from Mac App Store and format an USB drive to HFS+ and GUID partition table.
Then run this two commands:

sudo "/Applications/Install macOS Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia" --volume /Volumes/install_osx --applicationpath "/Applications/Install macOS Sierra.app" --nointeraction

and

sudo diskutil rename "Install macOS Sierra" install_osx

Attention! The "Install mac OS Sierra" application must be in the programs folder.
