Holding the Apple-S does not seem work, still getting the flashing "?"
That did not work - I don't have Disk Warrior but I do have Tech Tool Deluxe CD does it have anything that would hep?
I did have Apple Care (just expired)
To answer your qeustion - the laptop froze and when and after waiting for over an hour I used the power button to turn it off and when I restarted I got the flashing ?. I restarted using the Leopard OSX disk which got me to the Disk Uility.
When I run the Disk Utility this is what I see
111.8 GB ST9120821AS.....
disk0s2 is not mounted and I get the invalid B-tree when I try to Verify or Repair Disk. I don't see the drive as an option when I run an "Archive and Install"
What are the commands I need to boot from the Tech Tool CD, I tried using the C on start up but it did not work
So far nothing has worked
Was able to reinstall and back up, I did lose the data I was trying not to loose. Thank you for your assistance.
