I have a MacBook pro, 2009, 13 inch, Original Snow leopard OS.
Recently, I was experiencing that my MacBook some times froze or restarted automatically! I didn't care, and one day it did not start!
When booting, it does not proceed the first gray page, and circle keeps rotating, until after few minutes the circle changes to a NO Entry sign.
I used Opt key while starting the MacBook and booted into Bootcamp. It works fine, I have been using Bootcamp windows for 2-3 weeks now, and just twice I got the Blue Death Screen, out of sudden! I got the opportunity to back up all my files.
I used Opt-Cmd-P-R combination and reset the NVRAM. Also I pressed the D key while starting and made a Apple Hardware Test. The result was recognition of the following problem: 4HDD/11/40000004:SATA(0,0)
Can some one please let me know what my problem is? If my hard disk is busted, how comes it works (almost) problem-less in bootcamp? Can the problem somehow be solved? For example if it is a bad sector on my hard disk, by isolating that area or so?
I tried to boot from MacBook DVDs and try to clean install the OS again, but when I restart and press and hold C key, (while the OSX DVD which came by my laptop is inserted), nothing happens! I hear the noise that it tries to read the DVD, and that's it...it just goes on for ages and nothing happens (stuck to gray initial boot page). How can I have a clean installation of my OSX?
Does my computer (Snow Leopard, MacBook Pro mid 2009), have a recovery hidden partition? How can I access that?
Your helpful comments are highly appreciated.
