I have a older mid 2009 that wont fully boot up. I have tried all the startup shortcut keys and none of them do anything exept for option and command-s. As far as I can tell its hd is corrupted, but I can’t get to the utilities to fix it. Any ideas?
No, neither of those commands do anything. The progress bar pops up but it never starts. I tried twice with both key combo. The first time, I held the keys down and waited for the progress the start (which never happened). The second, I held the keys down until the progress bar popped up.
I tried all 15 key commands that I know of, there’s only 2 that actually do anything (option or command-s).
