    Ok so i got my macbook back from apple after a repair and i booted it. OSX loaded fine that time so apple can't have caused it. But i loaded with bootcamp into windows because i play games on windows. While using windows it blue screened. So i got fed up with windows and tried to load into osx. I got the apple symbol on boot and the spinnning loading thing but it would go no further (i waited 15 minutes. It normally takes 30 seconds).
    I used Command+Option -S. And used fsck -fy. This is what it said.

    I figured this would get me nowhere so i booted into windows with boot camp which still worked and typed this up.

    PS: I used disk utility from my install disc and it would not mount Macintosh HD which was unmounted.

    Boot camp is still beta....

    I cant help you here... Try a format/reinstall.

    You do have backups, right? ;)

    Heh. Sounds as if you have made the Mac Gods angry, only allowing you to use Windows and such. I think the only way to get back in their favor is to format and reinstall. And eat peanut butter. Just not Great Value or Peter Pan. They might kill you if you aren't careful. And the Mac Gods save death by peanut butter for when you willingly move over to PCs.

    (yeah, i know this makes no sense whatsoever. just reinstall. disregard most of the above)

    Not a single backup. If i have to reformat i'll lose all my programs and a few of my images on photoshop. Otherwise nothing else is there. I might see if i can borrow someone elses mac in my school and copy the files over firewire. If that works...

    I am never going back to pc's :p
