Answer to: Why wont my laptop boot up?Snow Leopard install failed. Disk Utility revealed the drive has hardware problems that cannot be repaired. Therefore I will replace the hard drive.
Answer to: Why wont my laptop boot up?Thanks fo the tips. Performed all sugestions. The results was repair/verify could not be performed in Disk Utility. Afterwards I connected a 3.5 drive USB and performed the following steps: Used the Snow Leopard install disk to perform an install to the USB drive. When the install was completed, I coppied all the data & software from my orignal drive to the USB drive. When that process (that took 3 hours) was complete, I reformatted the original drive and used Disk Utility to perform repair. I also did a verify to confirm the drive no longer had errors. I am presently performing a new Snow Leapord install to the original drive. When that completes, I will copy the data and software from the 3.5 USB drive to the original drive. I will keep the 3.5 USB drive as a back up. It will be good to have another boot drive available to troubleshoot future errors. Thanks again for the input.
