Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
so I went to turn on my Macbook Pro from June/July 2008 (I forget which) and it gets hung up on the loading screen. The gray screen with the apple and the "spinning" loading circle thing. It spins and spins and spins, and OS X never loads. I tried resetting the NVRAM (or whatever its called), and the other thing (I did the Command+Option+P+R, and the taking out battery and unplugging and holding down the power button for 5 seconds thing), an it still wouldn't boot. So I grabbed my reinstall disc I got from Apple with the computer and it wouldnt let me repair the harddrive in disc utility. And since I only have like 5.3GB free I don't have enough to archive and install (i'm like 503MB short). I also can't boot into Safe Mode.
But I can boot into Boot Camp, i'm on my Boot Camp Windows 7 Beta partition right now. I have absolutely no idea what to do now. Is there any way I can access those files on the mac-side of my harddrive so I can back stuf up or delete some to do an archive and install? Or not and will I have to do a full erase and install? Are there any other options or anything else I could try to fix it? I have no idea what caused this to happen
