A possible fix for invalid sibling links on a hard drive
Authored by: KingSmarky on Feb 03, '09 03:43:53PM

So i tried what it said in the tip and it didn't work as "df" did not show the drive.

However all I needed to do was go into Single user mode (boot with -s) and then type

fsck_hfs -r /dev/volumename

And it worked! Well not the first time but the second time! :) boots into leopard now!! THANK GOD! thank you so much :) First thing i did was get Time machine to back up, last backup was two weeks old and had some photos i hadn't gotten around to backing up yet on it!

Seriously, cheers guys, came back just to let you all know!
