trying to reinstall os x lion but my hardrive is locked
i am forced to reinstall os x lion as my harddrive or mac has an issue.
my mac is not booting correctly so i do it in the save-mode (i speak german so i dont know the right term for it in english (however pressing alt+cmd+r+ turn on button). i can see that my HD is locked and i cant select it when i want to reinstall mac os xlion. in 'disk utility' i varified and repaired the disk and the message in SMART says verified, unfortunately i cant hit 'enable journaling' as its unclickable. please help me i need my files and i know they are there, ps. sorry i dont speak the mac-tech language, even if i used all this terms above, so please write as easy as possible :D
Is this a good question?
