    The short version:
    I have had to reinstall my OS several times over the past 3 weeks. Does it mean anything that SMART status passed, but 7 tests failed?

    The long version:
    Ive been looking into this for about an hour now. I have restored the OS about 4 times in the past 3 weeks. I had a bunch of kernel panics. Most recently I did a clean install without migrating anything from my time machine. A day later my macbook crashed AGAIN :mad: and would only boot into recovery. Trying to restore from internet failed once then was successful the second try. I use my macbook at work as well as for online classes and I have lost too much time lately. This is a major problem now. I am losing billable hours as well as unable to get my home work done.


    Thanks in Advance

    Looks like the hard drive dying and it needs to be replaced. Right now your are realizing you are a NOB because you never had a backup! So live and learn.
