I installed OS X on my mini 9 a few months ago, and have been happily using it ever since. One day I went to boot it up and after the apple comes up and the throbber spins a few times it just turns off. I tried booting with -v and the same thing happened, it gets a little way through the boot script and the says CPU Halted, I tried booting my old type11 boot cd and after pressing 0 to get the boot device selector and selecting cdrom, darwin boot loader immediatly loads rather than the cdrom. I know the cd drive and the cd work because I tried plugging them into my iMac and the disc comes up just fine. Also, single user mode works, so I can access my file system. I would be fine with reinstalling, but I need to boot the cd first. Any ideas?
edit: in single user mode fsck -fy / reports that "The volume Macintosh SSD
could not be repaired" that aught to explain why I can't boot OS X, but that shouldn't affect the cdrom!
