Hi all-

I'm trying to use the live cd to rescue some data off or a G3 iMac. The cd boots fine but spouts IO errors about /dev/hda. The OsX installer is unable to recognize the drive at all.

I think the volume header or superblock may be corrupted. mac-fdisk can't read a partition table at all. Of course mount fails as does hpmount.

Has anyone run into anything similar or can you offer suggestions? I can't find anything via search about disk repair on hfsplus filesystems.

TIA.

Your best bet would probably be trying to fix your drive with a DiskWarrior or a TechTool Pro boot CD.

Hello,

I have the same problem now, can't do swapon hda2 after booting with the live cd!

Did you found a solution to get your databack?

Thanxx
