I've had my macbook around 2 years or over.. Recently it was laggy and suddenly did not boot. Its now just showing a white screen with the spinning wheel...


I have managed to backed up all of my data to a EXT HD via Terminal commands, so I am not worried of losing data or anything..... I do not have any installation CD's or anything, will erasing my HD via disk utility on internet recovery solve the problem? Are there any other solutions?


PS. when I check HD info, it is showing yes to the following: can be formatted, repaired and is bootable... well.. I am puzzled to say the least


FSCK command not working, showing errors etc

Disk Utility repair showing invalid node etc (will not "repair")

Cannot boot into safe mode

No time machine backups

Internet recovery mode working


Please help! Thank you.

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

if you have backed up your data then do a erase in the disk utility of the full hd and install your os again via the install dvd or via a bootable usb of the os you want
