One night I was using my hackintosh when it crashed. I tried booting it up again but it would not get past the first Apple screen, as after the loading bar loads a few times, it turns itself off. I tried reapiring the install via my OSSX install usb and i was told it could not repair the disc. I then tried backing up the useful doccuments using a Ubuntu live usb. I could not copy my doccuments obver to my sd card as Ubuntu said I didn't have permission to.
Finally I tried bacling up the whole disc image using my osx boot usb but OSX says the image is too big, even though I have 700Gb free on my external hard drive.
Anyone got any advice?
