First of all, thank you very much for clicking on this thread, i am desperate at this point and would do anything to restore my hard-drive (if possible). This is my problem at the moment: (I'll add as much detail as possible for you to assess my situation) I have a Macbook pro 13" with a Windows partition. I was running my Windows 7 on Bootcamp when my Macdrive8 program alerted me of the unmountable mac disk. I immediately restarted my computer and tried to boot from the MacOS but the computer got stuck on the loading screen. After waiting for 15 min (with no avail) I restarted the system and booted from my Windows. After googling for solutions, it seemed like my harddrive became corrputed and i tried these methods: Solution 1: used my MacOSX installation DVD to repair my Mac Result 1: In the repair option, the installation CD would not recognize the Mac Drive and would only show the bootcamp partition. The Mac drive would not even show up. Solution 2: used the "/sbin/fsck -fy" command Result 2: Did not work, and told me that it could not repair the disk Solution 3: Booted from Windows and used the Macdrive8's built in Disk repair feature (http://www.mediafour.com/products/macdrive/) Result 3:fml, it could not repair the disk By now, I'm exhausted and frustrated, and i hope someone in this forum could help me repair my Harddrive and save my files. A total wipe-out&reformat would be the last option for me as i want to same some sentimental files on the corrupted drive. Sorry for the long read. Any help would be very much appreciated.
