I just ran a Disk Check on my Mac after the warped batery issue I had two days ago; it tells me to start up the machine from my Mac OS X installation disk and run Disk Utility to repair.
I have cold feet insamuch as my Start Up disk is the old Tiger - and I have snow Leopard 10.6.5 installed on the machine; does that mean that I will downgrade to Tiger and then have to insert the Leopard disk after to upgrade? What about all my other "stuff" which is all up to date (including aperture 3, which I am a great user of...). What should I do?
Your advice is eargerly sought...Thanks

Hi Marc,
Here are step by step in case you need them (and nothing to worry about performing Repair Disk):
Repair Disk: Boot from install disc (insert disc>restart>immediately hold down c key and keep holding it until you see “Preparing Installation”)>at first screen select the language and click Continue> click on the Utilities Menu in the menu bar>open Disk Utility>select your HD in the panel on the left side>click Repair Disk at bottom of main window. Run this at least twice, and keep running it until it says “appears ok” twice in a row. If that doesn’t happen, you may need a stronger utility such as DiskWarrior or if the directory is damaged beyond repair, you may need to reinstall the OS, or you may have a damaged HD (repair utilities can only repair the directory structure, not the HD itself). When this is finished, quit Disk Utility, quit the installer, and restart.
