Hello, my name is Joseph. Purchased my Macbook Pro 13" mid 2012 in September so I have had it around two and a half months. Love it. Last night I turned it on and it then became frozen at the apple logo and spinning wheel (booting up).


I contacted support today and I believe his name was Brett was very helpful and polite, unfortunately he says I will need to re-install the OS. Thankfully I should be able to grab my important files and folders.


Out of curiosity though while going through troubleshooting steps such as trying to boot in safe mode (didn't work), Disk Utility options (didn't work), and having the background operations appear while booting I noticed an error that neither of us could identify and was repeating.


vnode validate compressed file Type4 error: 22


Can anyone explain this? I have only found one instance of this before.

MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid 2012), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
