After a reboot a friend of mine get this, what about it?
Booting with another ML partition, I can't see the first Macintosh HD.

What's happened?

Did he force shutdown or something? Seems like the volume is damaged, you could boot the installer and repair with disk utility if it does not boot after the self check shown on the screen. Else i would have no clue :)

I so vaguely remember this happening when my Snow Leo HDD itself began failing on me. The HFS checker thing would endlessly keep trying to repair to volume. It eventually repaired the volume but SMART showed the drive as actually failing so I had to pull an RMA on the drive and then since haven't had any issues with it.

Just saying, it could be more than just an OS X issue and possibly a mechanical issue so do look into it buoo.

Are you attempting to update the firmware on the SSD? Not entirely sure why you linked the Mac variant of the OCZ toolbox.

Seems the Harddisk has errors.If disk utility cannot repair then use Disk warrior but first thing you must have another Mac installed on any other partition.

I like to use Testdisk for this kind of thing.

At the very least it will usually tell you what's wrong.

We had to flash the firmware of his SSD however he can boot only in safe mode.
I partitioned his SSD in two partitions, one of 100GB for the operating system, the other one for the testing of new updates. But for the third time the first partition gets corrupted and we can't understand why. Not the same for the second partition. I'm asking to my self: Is it possible to make two partitions on the same SSD? xD
I've tested the SSD in Windows, no problems encountered. Maybe the problem is when I set it in AHCI mode, I think so.
