Hi guys. I have a 15" MB Pro with Snow Leopard (10.6.8) which I bought about 4 years ago. So far I've never really any had trouble with it. However 2 days ago while browsing online, the spinning wheel appeared and using Force Quit didn't work, so I performed a force shut down. After a restart, my computer would no longer boot past the grey screen with the spinning dial. I went on the hunt for an answer: >tried fsck -fy in single user mode but it still could not boot past the grey screen. >I tried to load up the Install DVD that came with my machine. I've held down C as I boot up, but it won't load and the computer keeps ejecting it. >tried resetting the NVPRAM but this doesn't help either. >It won't boot into Safe Mode, the bar loads about half way and then disappears and I'm left on the grey screen. >Holding "alt" as I boot only shows me the HDD icon. Clicking it brings me back to the grey screen. >I tried booting in Verbose mode too, and eventually after a long wait begins a cascade of "disk0s2: media is not present" So the current step I'm trying is an 8gb USB with DiskWarrior. The first time I booted up, it recognised my internal hard drive with no problems, but when I tried to rebuild it, it told me: "The directory of the disk DiskWarriorDVD cannot be rebuilt.This disk is not eligible. Only Mac OS disks that are locally attached are eligible (2007)" Now, when I try to load up DiskWarrior again, the HDD no longer appears on the drop down menu. Have I missed a step here along the way with Diskwarrior? Is there anything else I can try? Or is this a death-knell for my HDD? Thanks for taking the time to read this!
