Hi all, I am new to this forum and somehow need urgent help to rectify some issue I face with my Imac. The machine somehow stalled while I was accessing Iphoto. The status indicated just spin endlessly and I had to do a hard restart. From there on, it does not boot up and stop where the apple logo is. Good thing is it does allow it to boot up with the Imac cd that came with and by doing the press and hold on "C" thing. Did a check using disk utilities and it report that the harddisk is "serious damage" and cannot be rectify using first aid. And advise me to backup as much data as possible. So my question is: What shall I do? And how to recover all or copy / migrate / clone the entire HDD volume? Appreciated!!
