In an attempt to be all proactive and tech savvy, I was cleaning up and updating my laptop and in the process I completely killed it. My hard drive is apparently damaged and the OS installer is stuck in a loop. Of course I can’t find the original OS disk that came with my MacBook Pro (because it’s a bajillion years old) so that’s a bummer. I’m irresponsible and haven’t backed up my laptop in maybe 3 years so I can’t go straight for the wipe and reinstall method either. Any Apple geniuses out there who have any helpful hints? I’d prefer to not lose the past 5 years of music, pictures, documents, etc but I’m seriously considering just wiping it all and starting over (if that’s even as option?). Help!
