I will likely have to travel to get to an apple store, I hope half an hour, not two. I can always mail it in, I suppose, too. The installer will not install. I'd honestly junk it at this point,...

I'll look for a tutorial on rebooting from backup?

Yea, if all the factory can do is reinstall Mac OS X, I can do that.

Isn't this what backups are for? Before trying to reinstall the operating system, or after, should I try plugging in the...

I just keep getting back where I started. It was good to see how the disk repair actually works, but with all that it seemed to do, I always either get stuck at the same old screen, for a brief time...

I think I can follow the instructions, I'm just not sure at what point I need to eject the...

It seems I got ahead of myself, there. I can't close the Max OS X Install DVD window now, and when I attempted to click on the Finder, error message for 10810 came up again. Again, the mouse moves...

I guess I don't really know what this means. The computer restarted, and I have a window for installing Mac OS X. I am not sure how to restart (reboot) into OS X.

Have I done that already?

I did all of the verifying and repairing, and then quit the installer. I had to choose what to reboot from, so I chose the "HD" option. Hard Drive, I assume.

EDIT:

Now ther is a window in...

Now it wants ti install Mac OS X

O.K. now it wants to install Mac OS X. I really don't want to mess this up, since it may or may not be fixed, now. I assume I should quit Mac Installer now, is that correct?

So you have a MacBook or MacBook Pro? I'm guessing it's a notebook since you mentioned battery.

I was open-minded at 5:30 a.m. I confess, I am less convinced now that I can find a source that even knows the fix.

I turned on the Mac. The finder is not indicating that it is "on" (there is...

10810 may have me licked on my first year, first Mac
