comment How to copy files from an unbootable Mac?
I've had no luck with bootable Linux so have ordered a Firewire cable from Amazon.

Yep, the alt key. Just tried the PRAM reset and still no Linux disk on the boot screen...

That's the thing - I'm not even seeing the Linux option to be able to boot into it. I only see the Mac HD, and the Recovery HD. Any ideas?

I couldn't get the MBP to recognise the disc. I only had some DVDs kicking around so will try a CDR in the hope that works. I also tried a bootable Ubuntu USB but that wasn't recognised either.

If all else fails, I think I'll end up pulling the disk. Thanks

I don't have a FireWire or Thunderbolt cable, otherwise that'd be the perfect answer. Safe boot mode didn't work unfortunately. I'm going to try Linux Mint first, and if that doesn't work, I'll try DiskWarrior. Thanks.
