I have used the internet for the past 2 weeks in search of something that will help me troubleshoot/repair my MBP. It wont boot in Safe Mode using the SHIFT key. Following is everything I have tried and the results:
Safe Mode Boot - Failed
Command R - Failed
AHT - No Errors Found
Reset the Power Manager SHIFT+LEFTOPTION+LEFTCONTROL+POWER - PRAM Reset
fsck -yf, and many more.
RESULTS: SINGLEUSER BOOT FSCK NOT DONE, ROOT DEVICE IS MOUNTED READ ONLY, FSCK_HFS: VOLUME IS JOURNALED. NO CHECKING PERFORMED, FSCK_HFS: USE THE -F OPTION TO FORCE CHECKING. THE VOLUME MACINTOSH HD APPEARS TO BE OKAY.
/Volumes/Recovery HD/com.apple.recovery.boot - cd:
/VOLUMES/RECOVERY: No such file or directory.
Using the OPTION key only brings up one HD and it's not the one that should say RECOVERY DISK.
Help me please. I am not sure what needs to be done at this point. I can't perform some commands because I am in single user mode and it does not allow that. I'm not sure how to actually use the terminal to allow me to use SUDO.
I was able to get the following information from the Terminal. Hopefully this will be enough for someone to help me. I don't want to give out some information if it is a security feature.

I hope someone can provide some insight.
