I am in a spot and I have no idea what to do. I have an old Macbook Pro that I was resuscitating for various reasons (media center.) Anyway it was Tiger and I just loaded Leopard (which is the cutoff -- it can't run Snow Leopard.) Problem is after loading Leopard I get this message at login: "Your FileVault-protected home folder did not open and needs to be repaired. Click OK to repair the folder and continue logging in. Click Cancel Login to log in as a different user." But -- there are no other users and the only message that follows this after entering my password is: "You are unable to log into the filevault at this time." I found a fix that involved having the OS disk in to boot from -- but the computer will not boot from it and just takes me tot his screen. I launched it in TARGET MODE. In target mode I copied the sparse file over to my Snow Leopard computer. And now I just want to get the Leopard computer working (no longer fearing the loss of anything on the computer because I copied everything over.) Since I can't get it to boot from the DVD or launch into terminal -- Is there anything I can do in Target Mode to fix this? I would reformat but I don;t know how to do that in Target Mode (I did read how to do it if I was formatting FROM the target but not to it. Thanks!
