HSF+ Partition locked after upgrading to boot_v9 (Tried to restore an old hibernate file)

I use iPC 10.5.6.


I was using PC EFI V8.


I upgraded to PC EFI V9.


When I turned on my system, it attempted to recover a deep sleep(hibernate) file from several days ago when I was testing the feature.


The system loaded up at that hibernate point, but soon after began to act very funny... The graphical server reset a few times, never reloading my desktop. I powered off my system, and now when ever I reload, the system halts just after init of the EHCI Sleep module...


I am unable to access the HD from Ubuntu, and I am unable to install OS X overtop of my current installation.


While fixing my installation would be preferable, all i really need to do is access my files so I can copy them, at which point i would be glad to reinstall.


I have a USB drive(2gb), external DVD, and an 8Gb logical partition I would be willing to reformat, and have installed Ubuntu 8.10 and Windows XP, so those are the tools I have to work with.


If someone could tell me how I can make the files on my HSF+ partition accessable, or even better, how to repair my OS X install... would be much appreciated!



Tried using my install disk to verify disk...

Aparently it's a disk error... Invalid sibling link.


My install disk does not have the Fsck_hsf command in the terminal... Is there another way to get it without downloading another distribution??? If not, anyone know a distribution which 100% for sure has it?


hope someone has a solution.
