Did you notice any noises coming from your hard drive? If so, it's probably your hard drive that's about to fail. If not then that means it's a problem that could be fixed via software.

In which case, if I were you, I would run DiskWarrior: it could get you out of this one.

Or there's this, Resolve startup issues and perform disk maintenance with Disk Utility and fsck.
QUOTE Thanks
