Hey all, I have an early 2008 MBP and starting yesterday I have not been able to get OS to boot. I have a windows partition that boots with no problem, although I'm not sure what that means it seems good. I have tried pretty much every reset tactic that I know exists to no avail. I tried booting from CD which caused a kernel panic. This all started when I was carrying the computer through the house and the battery died (I have the original battery which normally lasts 3 mins unplugged). I am avoiding taking it to the apple store for as long as possible so please don't recommend that unless you genuinely think it is the only option. Thank you!
