Software :: Unable To Start Diskwarrior?

Sep 6, 2009

My iBook G4 (10.4.11 with 512MB) will not start up from the DiskWarrior disc.

I insert the disc and restart the computer holding down the C key until the screen comes up with the program on the screen and then let go of the C key.

The computer then promptly shuts down.

I have not had this problem before.

I have repaired the permissions using Disk Utility.

OS X :: Is DiskWarrior Still As Useful?

Nov 22, 2010

I've been using DiskWarrior for several years to optimize my hard drive and perform some hard drive maintenance.

It doesn't seem like it's been updated recently (ver. 4.2), so I'm beginning to wonder if the program has outlived its usefulness. Is there something else now that is better?

I use OS 10.6.5 on an iMac (mid 2007).

OS X :: Diskwarrior Freezes?

Jan 3, 2010

my intel mac OS X internal HDD crashed. (disk utility cannot mount hd, hdd grayed out) so i bought disk warrior online.

I'm currently running my OSX from an USB external HD. Install Diskwarrior in the external HD.

DW found my HD, click "rebuild" ...so far so good.

however, after running DW for about 10 mins, my computer goes to sleep. ever since then, I can't wake my computer to view the status of diskwarrior.

I hope DW is doing its thing but my external HD doesn't even blink. (i can hear the MAC is running?)

it's been 1 day now and still no sign of recovery??

OS X :: How To Copy Data Using Diskwarrior?

Sep 1, 2010

An HFSJ mac HD crashed from another mac. I connected it externally, via USB, to a working macbook pro and installed diskwarrior on the working macbook pro's hard drive.

I started diskwarrior from the OS (I didn't boot using the disc) and it ran for a few days, trying to rebuild the directory for the crashed mac HD.

It concluded that the crashed mac HD was mechanically failing and could not replace the original directory with the rebuilt directory and, therefore, it could not display an original and preview pane, side-by-side.

It was, however, able to offer just the preview of the rebuilt directory and advised that I copy the data off to another storage device, which I am attempting to do now.

The problem is the preview directory is locked and read-only.

When I attempt to copy files over to another storage device, OS X, with respect to the preview directory, indicates that "The operation cannot be completed because you do not have sufficient privileges for some of the items.

I clicked on get info for the preview directory and the permissions are grayed out. There is a checkmark for the "Ignore ownership of this volume" checkbox. For my username, it says read and write, and I am the sole user on this machine.

it also has "staff" and "everyone" as usernames, where "staff" is read & write and "everyone" is read only. The lock is locked and, like the rest of this section, grayed out and cannot be changed.

I realize that DiskWarrior automatically locks the preview of the rebuilt directory. But how am I supposed to copy files to a different storage device if I can't change permissions?

Edit: I should mention it is DiskWarrior 4.2 and Mac OS X 10.5.8. The crashed Mac HD I am unsure, but I found a user guide on it for Tiger. So, it is probably 10.4.x

OS X :: Diskwarrior Error-9997?

May 10, 2010

I got this error from Diskwarrior and am wondering what the deal is?
Here are the details:

My 80GB hard drive crashed and burned on my Macbook Pro Dual 1.83 running 10.5.8. I used Carbon Copy Cloner to clone the drive before it went totally kaput and then cloned it back onto a new drive that I installed into the MBP.

Upon running Diskwarrior 3.3 on the new clone in the MBP to look at permissions, I got error -9997. Do you know what that error indicates?

Googling it tells me that, if you get that error in 10.3 or 10.4 via Disk Utility (not DW) then you are missing a basesystem.pkg file. See:
[URL]

Looking back on the original clone, this file doesn't exist where the KB thread says it should so I'm assuming 10.5.8 doesn't use the same file in the same place.

I ran disk utility on the drive to look at permissions and other than a few corrected permissions, it didn't say there were any other errors.

So, which do I trus, disk utility or DW? Is this just a disconnect between the old DW 3.3 and 10.5.8 (I mean the old DW not reading 10.5 correctly for some reason) ?

Or do I need to do a clean install from the systems disk (something I really don't want to do if possible)?

MacBook Pro :: Does DiskWarrior Ever Boot Up?

Feb 20, 2012

Trying to boot up my MBP 10.6.8 with an updated DiskWarrior disk. Holding down "c" got me nowhere. Holding down "options" gets me to the screen showing the Mac HD and DiskWarrior DVD(which I just made, updated from the older DW 4.0). After choosing the DW, the computer just sits there. Is there a known problem with late-model MB Pros and DiskWarrior?

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

OS X Mavericks :: Used Diskwarrior And Now All Users Are Gone

Jun 4, 2014

My girlfriend was using her Macbook Pro as usually when the Safari browser froze. She used the power buttom to turn it off and when she turned it back on her discs were gone. Now it was only possible to log in on the recovery-10.9.3. 

So I used the disk utility, which showed that her partitions under a new names (Toshiba 750 Gb something). I ran the verify Disk and repair disk tools, which told me that there was a "Invalid B-tree Node size error" or something. There's is some importatnt files on the her hard disk (and of cause no backup) so I didn't dare to erase it completely. So I read about it and figured that I needed to run the Diskwarrior software.  

Diskwarrior couldn't find the right disk, but it found a disk called "customer" which we ran the software on. After this the disk changed name to "untitled" and the disk utility no longer found any problems, so I went home because I though I only had to setup the system again. I reinstalled the OS, but now there is only a user called "Other..." that needs a Name and a Password (neither of which we can figure out). 

I cant boot the su (CMD -S) directly from startup. I can boot from the Recovery partition, but I can't run the "sudo" command from the terminal window found in there.

MacBook Pro, OS X Mavericks (10.9.3)

Software :: Blue Screen After Diskwarrior?

Dec 14, 2008

I ran diskwarrior as part of my usual maintenance, but after quitting and attempting to restart from the hard drive, a blue screen eventually appeared and there it remained.

This blue screen flickered slightly and intermittently and when doing so the cursor would disappear.

Identical results occurred when booting from the leopard install cd, running disk utility, quitting and restarting.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Boot From Flash Then Run Diskwarrior

Mar 4, 2012

I want to run Diskwarrior for directory repair either for maintenance, or after a hard crash – on my 2011 MacBook Pro. Diskwarrior falls out of date everytime Apple updates the OS. I'm currently running Lion. I downloaded the free updater to 4.4, (I have a 4.2) but it still does not boot my mac.I (sort of) solved the problem by installing a full-blown Lion OS on an external firewire hard-drive, booting from it and then running Diskwarrior. Older versions of DW will do directory repair, they just aren't bootable if out of date.What I want to do is to boot from a Flash drive, and then run Diskwarrior.I have created a bootable flash drive, which works, but boots into the Mac OS X Utilities window (the same window you get when you boot into Recovery mode. Even though I'm booted from the flash drive, this window does not let me access Diskwarrior.I also have a 2T Time Capsule attached, can I put a copies of Lion and Diskwarrior on that to solve the problem?

OS X :: Files Recovered From DiskWarrior - What Directory Are My IPhoto Pictures Stored In?

Jul 23, 2009

I have a hard drive that is in the process of dying and had to use Diskwarrior in order to rebuild the drive; luckily, it seems to have recovered my files.

I looked in Users/Library/Pictures to find my iPhoto Library file, however it doesn't seem to my newer photos that I imported into the library.

Is there a secondary/hidden location that the original files are stored in? Where exactly can I find them?

PowerPC :: Unable To Start G4 - No Beeps/HDD Spins

Feb 11, 2009

I have a Powerbook G4 17 that I have been working on. I recently replaced the screen and verified that it worked prior to buttoning it back up. When buttoning the powerbook back up, I nicked two wires with screws. One was part of the LCD wire that comes from the LCD itself. The second was the airport wire that is wrapped around the screen. I wrapped them back up with a cover and preceeded to get using my comp again. Once finally put back together, I could not get it to turn on.

PowerPC :: Can't Eject Osx Cd On Powerbook / Unable To Start

Aug 12, 2009

I bought a powerbook off ebay, it worked but on startup occasionally a folder icon would appear. I rebooted from the original discs which seemed to do the trick. However the original discs are too old for many of my apps, so I bought some newer install discs (osx 10.5) I put the install disk in and got the panic message 'panic: Im hanging here'
The answer seems to be to run a disk repair (am i right?) However to do that I need to eject the install disc, I can't get the install disk out and of course it keeps tripping up everytime I start it. There is no secret little button to eject the disk manually. I have tried holding down apple and S but the install disk over rides everything and trips the mac up. I think ill be okay if I can just get this disk out.

Windows On Mac :: Unable To Start - Getting Black Screen

Jan 2, 2010

On my Mac Pro i have windows XP on hard drive number 2. I went to boot to it today after installing a program and nothing happens. The monitors are receiving information but there just a black screen.

Not sure what i should do considering that i can still access the drive and files from the MAC Side. I can also get to the boot screen to select safe mode but that also does nothing.

It is a early 09 Mac Pro...i have been using the computer this way since last April. Cant figure out what happened.

MacBook Pro :: Unable To Start Up Newly Formatted Mac

Apr 8, 2012

I have just erased my hard drive (after backing up) and installed Mac OS X Snow leopard from my install disk, I then copied all my files over from the backup (using time machine) and it said everything was successful and that i should login with my password.  

However, the password i had previously used did not work and neither did leaving it blank or anything else i could think of so i booted using the install disk and reset my password. I restarted and couldn't get past either a blank blue screen or more often a grey screen with a small wheel on it. I tried logging in with safe mode and got to the login screen but my keyboard didn't work (despite being able to hold shift to boot in safe mode) and though i could move my mouse, i couldn't click on anything. 

I have tried resetting the PRAM, Repairing the disk and its disk permissions but nothing changes.

MacBook Pro
