Hello everyone, My darling macbook died the other day, or what I assume was a death. Sometimes we play these games, but the blasted thing is either putting on the greatest performance of its life (ironic much), or it is, in fact, dead as a doornail. I get the white screen, Apple logo, and nadda afterwards. I did manage to boot from the OS Disk - once - and went into Disk Utility, ran repair, and it said everything was OK. This was a lie. A terrible, terrible lie... ...anyway, I am really needing something that may, or may not, be on my Time Machine backup, and since my darling Macbook is outside the warranty, I am wondering if the following will work. Could I make another OSX partition on my iMac (so, like 2 Lion operating systems of X-GB partitions), and then load the backups from the Time Machine program of my poor, deceased darling macbook cleverly saved on an external HD*question mark* I don't live very close to an Apple store, hate driving, and despise trains. If this works I can basically send the blasted thing off for recycling without having to bother myself, or an Apple tech, trying to fix it. I just need 1 file, 1 file that is as important to me as snow cones in summer. And it so may very well be on that infernal external HD Time Machine thingey. Maybe. Help. Thanks. Hugs. /Buskins.
