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?

Any ideas?

Not without some info about the machine - op system win 7? desktop or laptop? make and model of machine? does it have a DVD drive?

you can download a windows media disk and urn to DVD or USB and boot from that to repair the machine unless the HDD has physically failed.

It’s a MacBook Air (mid 2009). I’m not sure what os it has because I haven’t been able to get into it yet. It doesn’t have any drives but the had, it does have a USB port.

E mail the forum editor to transfer this thread to the Apple help room where it should get more response.

I have replied to your other thread - try and stick to one thread.
