I removed the /bin instead of ~/bin :(

My laptop no longer boots up! It has no DVD or CD drive!

How can I restore the OS X?

It is MacBook Pro OS X 10.8, SSD 128GB.

  • I did edit the accepted answer on the linked question - if you delete /bin - some common tools like cp will be missing, but you do still have tar and can cd /; tar -cvf - /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/bin | tar -xf - – bmike Feb 3 '14 at 20:34
