Hi.
6 month old MB pro was running a bit slow so I googled and saw that I should try to repair the disk. I started with the install disk 1 holding "c".
When I am in disk utility, repair disk option is not lit up and when I try to verify disk it stops halfway through. Message is First Aid failed. In red is, Invalid sibling link, volume check failed.

The bigger problem now is that the computer won,t start without the install disk. It gets to the grey screen then just shuts down!

Any ideas?
QUOTE Thanks

Dead HDD for starters. Take it back to where you purchased it pronto!
