    Hi All,

    Need help with the "Archive and install".

    My Macbook Pro is very slow. Tried all the disk repair etc. Nothing worked. So I have decided to do the Archive and Reinstall. l am getting the below error. Full error in the attachment.. I have got around 85 GB freespace in the Macbook pro.

    10.6 does not have an option to do an "Archive and Install". That's gone now.

    Here's the important part from the log:

    Ultimately, it says the installer crashed trying to read a BOM, which isn't a definitive answer. It could be bad RAM, bad hard drive, bad optical drive, bad disk, bad cables, corrupt directory structure, etc... We don't know at this point.

    You said your system has been really slow, so I'd start with suspecting a bad hard drive, and therefore if you have any important data on the drive that you haven't backed up, doing an OS reinstall is the *last* thing you'd want to do.

    Hi Detrius:

    Thanks for looking into this and your advice.

    As you have suggested I am going to the back up of the data. I will then take it to Apple for the appropriate repair/service.

    I got the "4hdd/11/40000004:SATA(0,0)" error when i did the hardware test. Is it the Hard drive failure error?

    I haven't run AHT since the PowerPC days, but that does look like it's claiming the hard drive failed its test.
