Is any one out there a Mac wizard? Because I could use one. Appealing to the internet is my last cry for help before going to the Mac store.
So long story short my Mac began lagging earlier today(which is not uncommon) so I decided to shut it down and restart it. I've done this plenty of times without a problem. However this time it turned on, went to the white screen with the apple, then a blue screen...and it just stayed on the blue screen.
After doing some research I found multiple options for my problem. None of them seemed to work so I found one final solution that was to be used if none of the others worked. Archive and install everything. So essentially reinstall most of my programs and not loose all that much stuff.
So I got my installation CD put it in and followed all these instructions(http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1710). When I git to the very last step(install) this is what I got:
I'm going to honest with you I could loose all my nail polish related stuff and I would be slightly pressed. I could loose all my photos and I would be bummed. If I loose my writing from the past 5 years I will loose it. I will go mental. Then I will probably drink loads. I know I should have backed everything up but as of right now that's too late.
Any help would be appreciated.
