So the other day, I was using my 2008 MBP like usual, and suddenly I got a kernel panic. I didn't think much of it because I was using some new software that I had just downloaded a few days earlier (Ableton Live, I don't think it was the software's fault though) and I turned off the computer like the instructions said & restarted. Problem was, when I tried restarting it it gave me a grey screen for a long time and then a flashing folder w/ a question mark icon showed up. I looked online and it saw that preforming a safe boot could correct the issue, since I tried repairing the disk image through Disk Utility, but the hard drive did not show up, only the optical drive was detected, but I digress. Is there any way that I can force the computer into safe boot via a terminal command? Or is there anything else that I can do to save my data? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
