    Yes! It finally worked. I never input all of those lines before-in that order of your last post. Something in there worked. Thank you very much! Yes I named it admin-is that a bad idea? It was my partners idea. Which reminds me: I never named my drive when I first got it, now there's blank beside it under the devices menu-is there a way to name it? I see that the drive itself is called Server HD and the other partition is called Macintosh HD2, but the mac mini itself is blank. Thanks again!

    Great.  And you're welcome.

    I think it is.  There's already a system group called "admin".  And while it won't be confused with an owner named "admin" it can be a bit confusing to the human reader.

    Not sure I understand.  You can rename the mounted volumes from the finder just by clicking on the name on the finder desktop (assuming you have Finder preference general show items set).  But at this point I woudn't advise it since you don't know what data is explicitly referencing the pathname to files on those volumes.  Renaming your boot volume however should pose no problems.

    I am facing this similar problem and found this post. I read through it all and am certain that this is the exact problem with my mac. I did as you said and was real optimistic finding it solved the problem 3 years back. However my mac is not responding as I hoped the error still remains and can't seem to solve it. Can you help?
