    Hi all,

    I believe I'm in trouble, although I'm not sure how big it is. A couple days ago, after noticing the bluetooth icon on the menu bar crossed out or something, I restarted my Macbook (it's 10.5.2.). However I can not boot into OSX - just the white screen with Apple logo.

    The local APR guys suggested to use the installer DVD to run Disk Utility. So I inserted the original installer (10.4.10). The "repair disk" option worked, it told me that something minor needed to be fixed (and it has) but I can't choose the "repair disk" option. It said something like "no valid package".

    Does it mean that I need to run Disk Utility from the Leopard DVD? Which is a problem, since I don't have it with me right now.

    I don't know if this will work, but suppose I have a Fire Wire cable and connecting my Macbook to another Mac running Leopard, will I be able to run Disk Utility from this other Mac to repair disk permission on my macbook?

    I wish I had an external FW drive with bootable clone..
