A possible fix for invalid sibling links on a hard drive
Authored by: Bobe52ME on Mar 16, '09 07:28:07AM

Unfortunately the reported fix hasn't worked for me and I am just restoring my hard drive from Time Machine for the second time in about 4 months.

I can connect to the drive using the Target mode and another computer, but every time I try to start the MacBook Pro 15" with the problem, it makes it through about a half boot up and then shuts down.

The only advice I have, until I find something else that works, is to use Time Machine hourly and then you can restore everything the way it was just before the Sibling Link problem.

I would be interested to know if anyone has experienced this problem after installing a new, larger HD in their MacBook Pro. I replaced my 120Gig drive with a 320Gig drive about a year ago but didn't start with this problem until about 5 months ago. I run a fairly full HD, too.
