I tried fsck -f fsck -y multiple times, booting in safe mode, zaping the pram and all that stuff, nothing as worked. I am getting very fustrated. I dont really care about how to fix it but I care more about... is there any possible way I can get files off of the macbook even though it wont boot. like is there a way for another computer ( windows or mac ) to pick it up so I can transfer files? what accessories will i need?
