I was using my computer normally when the computer stopped working all together. I turned it off and when I turned it back on I got a blank screen with a flashing folder with a question mark. I opened the OS recovery panel, went to disk utilities to mount my hard drive but the disk was grayed out and was not able to mount or even verify.

After looking at some posts online, I came across the "diskutil list" command, which I ran from the terminal (output shown below).

My main disk seems to be formatted as "Fdisk_partition_scheme", which I think might hint at the problem?

Does anyone have any advice on how to make my drive bootable again? My priority is keeping my data intact.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance!
