When I tried Safe Boot, the gray screen with spinning gear changed to gray screen and a circle with a diagonal line

I goofed and shut down without pressing Conmmand + S. What do I do now?
Ok I started and let go the keys when I saw script. The last line says Still waiting for root device. Then there is a little white block, but typing keys do not work
MacBook Pro now upgraded to OS Lion. I did get discs but I am not at home and therefore don't have access to them. Also, I don't have my Time Capsule to retrieve past information and I believe that reinstalling the OS will lose my information stored on my computer. Do I have any alternatives?
Since we haven't resolved the problem, do I still get charged the $59.00 fee? I am not able to get Lion recovery from Apple until I return to my home in a couple of weeks.
How do I achieve this download if I can't get my computer to start?
I tried opening with Cmd + R and all I get is the spinning gear and no connection even after 2 min. of holding the keys.
I guess I'll wait till I return home and visit the Apple store.
I have run out of time and have to go out but I have tried the PRAM and R-Cmd a second time with no positive results.
Sorry to rate this situation as Poor Service but I don't have a successful solution after a long time of communication and I can't afford any more time. Since I still have a cdomputer that won't start, I really don't think that I should pay for the service
I don't see any button or info that indicates that I can leave this situation open. I am willing to reconsider if I can simply close down this computer and open up the website and continue tomorrow.
