Hello Everyone, well first of all, yes im new, i just signed up, but i've been around macrumors.com for a while now, and i really want to thank you because you have helped a lot, just by reading all the threads and problems i related to at the time, but now i really have searched the entire web and havent found anything that can help me! so here are my details Im running in a white Macbook 5,2 (mid o late 2009) the thing is that i just started having issues when turning on, i get this gray screen with the apple logo and a loading bar that takes around 10-15 minutes to complete, everytime i turn my computer on, i have to wait that long. so i decide to run a Disk check and this is what i found it says i need to repair the disk with my installation cds but the thing is that my computer came with the Leopard and i bought the family pack for Snow leopard with a few friends a while back now and i really dont know where the cd can be, so if i run the repair from the leopard disk, i will not longer have the app store and wont be able to upgrade to lion, or mountain lion, or mavericks next year, so if i download mountain lion now that i have the appstore, can i run the repair, or do a fresh installation with it?? will it repair the disk, or do i have to go back to leopard and then buy over again snow leopard? i really apreciate if you have any idea what can i do! im trying to survive with this computer for my last semester in college and then upgrade!
