My mac was on standby over the night and when i opened it, it had a kernel panic. I rebooted my mac as it told me too and the gray screen and Apple logo appears.. And I'm stuck. I am able to boot from the CD start up disk but when I get into Disk Utility, the icon for my hard drive (named "Macintosh HD") is faded. I am able to perform a disk repair (which I did, and it tells me that Disk Utility wasn't able to repair it) and the "Repair permissions" and "Verify permissions" buttons are faded out so I can't select them. I have tried booting up into Single User Mode so I could run fsck, which apparently worked, but when I reboot (and after a really slow startup) there appears yet another kernel panic. I'll type more if someone needs more info. I do have another Mac available if it's the case, but I'm afraid that if Disk Utility can't read the disk then connecting it to another Mac will not allow me to read it either. I would really like to avoid erasing the disk. If I can just somehow save the data somewhere first, and then just let my extented AppleCare Protection Plan deal with the whole start-up problem. Thanks!
