wow that was fast hehe.. thanks mate ill give it a go!Simple - just boot from your OSX DVD (Command-C during boot up) and run Disk ujtility from the DVD (under the Utilities menu) and do a Repair Disk
The thing is: Disk utility cannot Repair a disk, while the machine is booted from that disk. That's where the 'failure on exit' thing comes from
sorry im new at this thing where do i type fsck -fyRestart your Mac in Single-User Mode. Run File System Check:
- Press [ cmd ]+[ s ] until the command prompt appears.
- Type fsck -fy.
- When you get back the command prompt, repeat Step 3 until there are no additional repairs.
- Type exit.
You already quoted the directions.how do i do this?
When you go into single user mode, there are directions on the screen for using fsck.To start up in single-user mode:
Choose Apple menu > Restart, or press the power button if the computer is turned off.
1. Press Command-S as the computer starts up.
2. The computer screen is black with standard white text.
You can now run the UNIX commands that you want.
