    Long story, but basically I got an "invalid sibling error" on my intel IMac and was told the best fix was to zero the HD and reinstall. I did this and got Leopard running. Now it hangs while I try to update to 5.10.8. I downloaded the combo update from Apple after it failing through system update.

    I'm not sure what the issue could be. I've verified the disk, checked it's smart status is ok and run the hardware test from the install disk.

    Any ideas?

    I did a hard restart and after boot and using disk utility I get an "Invalid Node Error". I'm doing an extended hardware test to see if my HD is bad. Would people recommend a going through zeroing the disk and doing a fresh install again?
