My friend bought Leopard the other day but wanted me to install it because she wasn't confident doing it herself. Anyway, I tried an Archive and Install which failed. Anyway, it said to try again, so I rebooted and tried again, but it said I couldn't install leopard without doing an erase and install. That was unacceptable because we need some things on the hard drive, so we decided to just stop installing leopard until we could save everything. Now the macbook won't start up... It'll get up to the point where it shows the Apple, and the loading circle. When it finishes that, it just shuts down. At this point, I've tried to repair the disk using the installation cd. That ends up failing. fscd doesn't complete in single user mode. and I can't mount the disk onto my MBP by holding T when turning her computer on... So... now I'm completely lost on what I can try next... let me know if I can give any more info... I'll gladly supply it. Thanks!
