Hi
I have a Macbook Pro running Tiger.. recently it has been running super slow so I did a utility check and apparently - My HD says Volume needs to be repaired... I tried this with Onyx but I don't have my original OS X installer CD.

I have saved all my files on an external HD, and so my question is:
Would a clean install of leopard take care of the HD problem?
Do I need disk warrior as well?
any help much appreciated
Alex

Have a look at this thread (stickied at the top of this forum). In particular, do step 7. That should get you fixed up without having to go through so much hassle.
