    2010 mbp and my boot disk won't mount. So in recovery mode I try to run first aid on my ssd and it says "first aid found a corruption that needs to be repaired. To repair the startup volume, run first aid from recovery. "

    But that's exactly what I'm doing.

    If I try to run first aid on the bootdisk partition I get a bunch of errors

    Is there something else I can do from disk utility to save my disk or should I erase it and reinstall?

    Do you have any way to "boot the Mac" externally?
    By that, I mean from a drive that is not the SSD?

    (This DOES NOT mean from the recovery partition, but from ANOTHER drive altogether).

    Do you by any chance have the install DVDs that came with it?
    That might work.

    Sounds like the SSD may have failed.
    Do you have a backup?

    I've installed sierra on a usb stick and I'm booting from that for now. I've got lots of important things backed up but I'd like to see if I can access the drive before trying to wipe it and start again.

    What is the brand and make of your SSD ? And how long ago did you install it ?
