Default Mini 9 Shuts Off at Apple Load Screen - 03-27-2009, 07:34 PM

Hey Everyone,

I'm having a major problem with my week-old Mini 9. Everything was working fine until this morning, the battery ran low and I didn't get a chance to plug it in before the system shut off entirely.

I have not been able to get it back up and running.

When I restart the computer, I get through the Dell screen just fine, but when I get to the grey Apple screen, it loads for a minute and then shuts the computer down entirely.

Using my Type11 boot loader USB, I managed to boot into the OS X installer again and ran Disk Utility's first aid on the disk. This was what I got when I clicked on Verify Disk ("Horus" is the name of my drive):

Verify permissions for "Horus"
Error: The underlying task reported failure on exit.

Permissions verification complete

Verifying volume "Horus"
Checking Journaled HFS Plus volume.
Checking Extents Overflow file.
Checking Catalog file.
Invalid node structure.

Since it's only a week old, it wouldn't be a big deal for me to reinstall everything and just format the drive and try again. I'm not sure if that's an option yet, because I haven't attempted it. If any of you know what's going on and how I could go about repairing this, please let me know.
