    I have a mid 2009 MBP 15" 2.66GHz intel core i7 processor. I was having some trouble opening software update and was told to fix my permissions and to verify my disc so i did that. while The disc was verifying it stopped and said the volume macintosh hd was found corrupt and needs to be repaired. Repair disk is grayed out. I do not have the original copy of my os x but i did make a back up copy incase i lost my original. So i put that in to see if i could repair that way it dose its thing but when my mbp restarts to finish i get the gray screen with apple logo and nothing happens. Things i have done i was told to press shift control p and r did that its dose its thing and when i go to try again i get the same screen. I have started my computer with shift option control and power button. no luck. I also did the smc thing if that is what its called with no luck. also when this started i was running 10.6.7 when i first tried repair with my back up copy of os x it changed to 10.6.8 so i feel like i did something right. But i still get the volume corrupt deal. I have no money to take it to apple store or mac doctor. So if there is a solution to my problem that i can do that would be awesome.

    It sounds to me like your hard drive is dead or near dead. It also sounds like your back up copy is not the same OS version as what you had. Where did that back up come from? Is it a clone of your HDD? IMHO, get a new hard drive, restore from your back up (you do have a back up right?) and it should be good.
