My macbook won't start - i have tried safe mode which did not work, i tried the apple hardware test and it said all is ok. I started from the install disk, and tried to repair the disk or permissions, but both were greyed out. so I unmounted the HD and it let me repair disk, however it went through a bit then said "disk utility can't repair this disk" and to recover any data i can and reinstall.

Is there another soloution as opposed to re-install?

HELP!

Macbook early 08 - 250GB, 4gb ram, black, 2.4ghz core 2 duo, Mac OS X (10.6.3)
