Hi, I tried to install snow leopard on my 3 mos. old macbook pro and received a failure message with the invalid node structure, rebuilding catalog B-tree message.

Not sure what to do, I tried booting up from the leopard install disk and it took about 15 minutes to boot up and everything is wonky, doesn't work right. My mail program in in chinese or Japanese, weird.

I have an appointment with the Apple store for Saturday since everything is supposed to be under warranty. Should I just wait for that or can I erase and re-install leopard? I am a new mac user so I don't really know much. Thanks for any help.

Toe Cutter: Please do not "hi-jack" someone else's thread, especially with a different subject.

tanzyblue: Just keep your appointment with the Apple genius and let them sort it out for you. In the meantime watch football on TV.

Regards.
