A possible fix for invalid sibling links on a hard drive
Authored by: sboerup on May 18, '09 08:34:05AM

I signed up just to comment.

Out of nowhere, my MacPro refused to boot. Never having a single problem before, and having used it 6 hrs previously, I was a little puzzled with what was wrong. I removed all my drives except for the boot. That yielded nothing. I tried removing RAM sticks and nothing.

I ran across this tip and ran it. One -r pass and it fixed it. Went in to Disk Utility, and it was already mounted afterwards. Restarted and booted up just fine. Thank you SO SO much for this. I was thinking I was going to have to call AppleCare, knowing that they will not be able to assess the problem.
