    I installed mountain Lion soon after it was release. Ever since i do not have any problems. All of sudden last night, it is not booting. When i pushed to power button, i hear the volume, apple logo and then shutdowns( all happening in less than 1 min.). Its the same story all the times.

    I tried couple of options.
    1. Tried online recovery, Commad + R , took me to apple server boot,
    from here i could not, repair disk
    2. Tried to reinstall os-x, got the error disk is locked
    3. Resetting PRAM and NVRAM -Command-Option-P-R keys
    Nothing worked out.

    Can you please suggest me if it is possible to get my mac with data?
    I don't have any Time machine backups to recover from.

    I guess I'm not the only one experiencing problems after upgrading to Mountain Lion, I've had your same issue, error on HD it shows locked? exclamation mark

    on my first trip to the Apple store they said it's the HD < i didn't buy it I purchased my own HD installed it after several HD it was finally recognized by the laptop but couldnt interact with it, cant format it, sounds like a Hard drive Cable issue? took it to Apple again and the guy confirmed it was a Hard Drive Cable issue told me to pick it up in 24-48 hours, now I got a call saying they changed it didnt work so its a logic board issue WTF
