I had the same problem and this at least got me going somewhere. I can see most of my data is still accessible and the disk is not dead as I initially thought. But the specific file suggested for removal here was not present at all on my disk.

`rm /etc/launchd.conf` says, "No such file or directory". Would qppreciate any other possible suggestions. Thank you so much!
