10.5.2 disk utility will not verify or repair permissions

After updating my Powerbook G4 and my wife's iMac G5 to 10.5.2, I attempted a routine repair of permissions on both machines. After booting from the install disk, disk utility just "stuck" when I started repair permissions saying it would take "about a minute" but not progressing at all after that. That is to say no ongoing log of what was checked or repaired, just no movement at all.
Any ideas?

Just a quick note: I have solved the problem by downloading the "standalone" updater onto my Macbook. I then started up the iMac G4 in firewire target disk mode and moved the updater there. Then I opened it up with the Macbook and ran the installer, selecting the iMac G4. Everything ran without any problems, and then the 1.5.2. updater opened up. I'm running permissions repair now and going to bed! Hope this may help someone else with a locked up hard drive....

  • Disk Utility will not verify disk because, "The underlying task reported failure on exit."  Now what?

    Disk utility will not verify disk because, " The underlying task reported failure on exit."  The "repair disk" button does not light up.  The report says that repairs need to be made to the hard drive.  I have already checked permissions.  What do I do next to get the repair process started?  Also, I cannot find a defragmenting drive option in Disk Utility.  Doesn't it exist?

    You need to boot from the install DVD (or a clone of your internal) to run Repair Disk. Repair Disk will be grayed out, dimmed, because you can't repair from the same volume you are booted from.
    EDIT: No, you do not yet need to use Disk Warrior or Tech Tool or do any reformatting. These steps might become necessary only if Repair Disk fails.
    Unless you have very large video files, for example, there is no need to run any defragmenting utility. OS X does it all by itself on the fly.
    Try Disk Utility
    Start from your Mac OS X Install disc: Insert the installation disc, then restart the computer while holding the C key.
    When your computer finishes starting up from the disc, choose Disk Utility from the Installer menu. (In Mac OS X 10.4 or later, you must select your language first.)
        Important: Do not click Continue in the first screen of the Installer. If you do, you must restart from the disc again to access Disk Utility.
    Click the First Aid tab.
    Click the disclosure triangle to the left of the hard drive icon to display the names of your hard disk volumes and partitions.
    Select your Mac OS X volume.
    Click Repair. Disk Utility checks and repairs the disk.
    If you don't have the install DVD, try a Safe Boot. Hold the Shift key down at startup and give it much more time to boot than usual. It's trying to repair the drive directory.

  • Disk Utility will not let me 'repair disk'

    Hello Mac helpers,
    When I run Disk Utility it reports: "First Aid Failed.
    The Underlying Task Reported Failure on Exit."
    Also:"1 HFS Volume Checked
    Volume Needs Repair."
    However the "Repair Disk" button does not illuminate so I cannot click to repair the disk as instructed.
    Any and all suggestions welcome.
    Thank you in advance for your assistance.

    Here's how you must do it (cannot repair a startup volume):
    Repairing the Hard Drive and Permissions
    Boot from your OS X Installer disc. After the installer loads select your language and click on the Continue button. When the menu bar appears select Disk Utility from the Installer menu (Utilities menu for Tiger.) After DU loads select your hard drive entry (mfgr.'s ID and drive size) from the the left side list. In the DU status area you will see an entry for the S.M.A.R.T. status of the hard drive. If it does not say "Verified" then the hard drive is failing or failed. (SMART status is not reported on external Firewire or USB drives.) If the drive is "Verified" then select your OS X volume from the list on the left (sub-entry below the drive entry,) click on the First Aid tab, then click on the Repair Disk button. If DU reports any errors that have been fixed, then re-run Repair Disk until no errors are reported. If no errors are reported click on the Repair Permissions button. Wait until the operation completes, then quit DU and return to the installer. Now shutdown the computer for a couple of minutes and then restart normally.
    If DU reports errors it cannot fix, then you will need Disk Warrior (4.0 for Tiger) and/or TechTool Pro (4.5.2 for Tiger) to repair the drive. If you don't have either of them or if neither of them can fix the drive, then you will need to reformat the drive and reinstall OS X.

  • Disk Images will not mount and Disk Utility will not runru

    I am having some major problems with Disk Utility, Disk Images, and software update. First, Disk utility will not open or run. When I double-click the application icon, nothing happens, no message, nothing. I am running OSX 10.4.11. I have deleted diskutility prefs. I am able to run Disk Utility from the Startup DVD of Tiger. On first run, it verified and repaired permissions. I run verify and repair permissions several more times from Startup DVD and everything is fine. But Disk Utility on my startup HD will not work. Similary, NONE of my disk images will mount. No matter what Disk Image i try to mount, nothing will. And I cannot use Disk utility to mount them! So, no matter what I download, no images will mount. And thirdly, when I try to run software update, it will not work. I do get a message: it says, "Could not load Software Update." Finally, i tried to download Onyx to delete log files, etc.. but again, the disk image will not mount. I was able to install a dashboard widget called "maintidget" and was successful in running the daily, weekly, and monthly maintenance tasks. Can anyone help? Everything else works fine!!! All apps! Safari, Mail, iTunes, MS Office, everything works fine. Thanks for ANY help!

    Previously, I had run verify permissions, repair permissions multiple times(from startup DVD) - no probems found. Deleted disk utility prefs. Run the maintenance taskes (daily, weekly, monthly). Nothing worked. But, I forget to check the drive for problems. So I ran disk scan. It found "invalid node" and repair disk could not do it. So, do I erase and do a fresh install or get DiskWarrior? I am running Leopard so I do not have Time Machine but I have backed up my documents, iTunes Library, iPhoto Library, etc... Another thing I found out the hardway is to sync all your bookmarks, mail settings and messages, etc... with .mac if you have an account. Any more suggetions?

    My disk utility will not let me highlight journaled in the drop down menu. I need to erase the entire mac for re sell purposes.

    You need to be booted from another source as you cannot delete or reformat the drive you are booted from. See if you can either use the original install disks (Snow Leopard or earlier) or internet recovery (Lion or later) to boot from and then be able to use the Partition tab to partition and format it correctly.

  • Disk utility will not boot using COMMAND   R. It won't give me the 'ERASE' option when I open Disk Utility. How do I wipe my hard drive?

    Disk utility will not boot using COMMAND   R. It won't give me the 'ERASE' option when I open Disk Utility. How do I wipe my hard drive?

    If you're truly running 10.6.8, there is no Recovery partition - that didn't come along until 10.7x.
    You'll need to use the set of gray discs that originally shipped with your model. If you don't have them, you can always get your serial number from the bottom of the casing and call Apple to get a set of replacement discs. These will run you about $20 + shipping & taxes. Once you have the discs, boot from Disk One and use Disk Utility to erase your HD and then reinstall whichever version of OS X that shipped with your model. No way around of getting the discs.

  • IPhoto 06 and Disk Utility will not launch

    I have a friend who has upgraded to iLife 06 on her G4 Mirrored Doors and when she tries to launch iPhoto 06 it bounces in the dock and then stops. iWeb will launch, as well as iDVD and iMovieHD, but Disk Utility will not. I have used the Tiger Install DVD to repair permissions as well as run FSCK -fy in single user mode. Nothing seems to fix these problems. Any advice will be appreciated.
    PowerBook G4 15 Al   Mac OS X (10.4.8)  

    Since Disk Utility won't run I'd reinstall the 10.4.8 COMBO updater. Then see if DU will launch. If so repair disk permissions with it. Then see if iPhoto will launch. If not then reinstall iPhoto from the iLife disks, update to 6.0.4 with System update, and then download and run the 6.0.5 updater (it will only run on 6.0.4). Then run Disk Utility again and repair disk permissions.
    Before reinstalling however, all files with "iPhoto" in the file name that reside in the HD/Library/Receipts folder must be deleted along with the current application.

  • Disk Utility Will Not Open

    Disk Utility will not open. It will start but closes immediately. Removed com.apple.Diskutility.plist from user preference folder. Still will not open. Selected try again when that dialog box showed up. Rebooted. Same results.
    Rebooted from external source and ran Disk Utility.
    Apparently, something is missing in one of the libraries.
    Need help.

    Hey Doc, here's what I did to work your sugesstion: clean all three logs, attempted opening Disk Utility, and viewed all three logs. cdonsole.log and system.log were the same stating Disk Utility Crash.log was written to.

  • Disk Utility will not unmount drive

    I have a cloned copy of my Macintosh drive on a LaCie firewire drive as backup. I have booted to the firewire drive and encountered the following problems with the Disk Utility.
    1) Verify & repair disk function on the Mac volume failed with the error: Could not unmount disk.
    2) Volume erase on the Mac failed with the error: Could not unmount disk.
    Using Terminal I have checked to see if any processes on the Mac drive are active, but that does not seem to be my problem. I tested this idea based the suggestion in a thread that reported the same type of problem.
    I have used this backup system for many years with no problems. I always use the normal procedures for system maintenance that Mac users recommend.
    Any suggestions for resolving this problem?
    iMac 1.83GHz Intel Core Duo   Mac OS X (10.4.10)   2GB RAM

    I have wiped the LaCie drive many times and reset the disk format. Just as a drill, I repeated the process this morning. No change in my situation.
    I use OnyX on a regular basis to run BSD scripts. Based on your suggestion I ran all other maintenance processes. Did not solve my problem.
    Since I last posted I ran the Apple Hardware Test, and the results indicated no problems. I also checked Disk Utility while booted from my installation disk, and successfully ran the First Aid repair disk function. So in this mode the Mac disk dismounts correctly.
    The Mac drive dismount problem indicates that a process is active on the Mac drive. I have checks this out several times and I find no evidence that this is the source of the problem.
    I plan on meeting with a friend on Monday who also has a Mac. I will test the LaCie drive connected to his computer to see if I get the same results. If I do then I will replace the LaCie drive.
    Thanks for your assistance. If you have any additional ideas just post and I will followup.

  • Disk Utility will not burn DVDs

    Disk Utility will no longer burn DVDs. I have tried both Memorex and Verbatim DVD+R DL -- Disk Utility tells me the disks are locked, not writable, capacity 0. These are fresh DVDs right off the spindle. I am, however able to write to these same DVDs using Burn, so it's not a media problem. Tried deleting preferences for Disk Utility, tried using Drive Genius 2 to repair the HD, but it didn't show any problems. Any solution short of doing a clean install of the system?

    Will the drive read any discs?
    Have you tried burning a disc at slower speed?
    Have you tried a different, quality brand of disc?

  • Disk Utility will not secure erase after 2015-002 security update

    I have a Mac Book Pro, May 2010, 2.4 ghz; 8gb ram; 500 gig hd (which I installed in Sept 2013), running Mac OS 10.9.5.  I am running Disk Utility Version 13. 
    I run secure erase, single, three and seven passes, several times a week, and regularly clean out cache files.  I have used about 228 gb; 271 gb are free.
    After installing Security Update 2015-002, I ran secure erase, single pass.  I got a failure message stating disk utility could not erase temporary file.  I ran secure ease, single pass, on the admin, everyday use and guest portions of my hard drive,  Same error message.
    Is a solution beyond doing a Time Machine backup, wipe the hard drive clean on a single pass, and reinstall?  Buy a new hard drive?  Thanks

    Do a backup, preferable 2 separate ones on 2 drives. Boot to the Recovery Volume (command - R on a restart or hold down the option/alt key during a restart and select Recovery Volume). Run Disk Utility Verify/Repair and Repair Permissions until you get no errors. Then re-install the OS.

  • Disk utility will not unmount my external HD to make repairs

    Hi. Having a problem with an external 2TB HD connected to my iMac 11,2 running 10.6.8. The external was originally connected to a MacBook Pro (same OS) which failed and was replaced by the iMac about a month ago. The external has 3 partitions: Time Machine backup, Carbon Copy Cloner backup and a storage partition for image files.
    I used the Time Machine back up to transfer files to the new iMac, re-cloned the whole drive to the CCC partition and added some new files to the storage partition. Everything has been fine until yesterday. I realized I hadn't turned on Time Machine yet to start backing up the new iMac. I selected the same Time Machine backup partition I had been using w/ the MacBook Pro as my Time Machine backup drive for the iMac, but all attempts to back up failed. Got this message:
    Time Machine could not complete the backup. An error occurred while creating the backup folder.
    Now when I turn on the external HD I get a message saying that the Storage volume can't be repaired and to back up the files from it. If I run Disk Utility it cannot unmount any of the volumes and can't initiate any repairs. Trying to fix disk permissions would fail on the CCC volume until 30' ago when it started displaying a long list of error messages. it's still doing it. Most of them start off with:
    Open error 16: "Resource busy" on System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.6/lib/python2.6/ (this part here changes for each line).
    And then the others begin with:
    Open error 1: "Operation not permitted" on System/Library/frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/lib/python2.5/test/test _set.pyc (with some variation at the end)
    When this list started running in Disk Utility, the Console displayed the following:
    Cleaning up expired diagnostic messages database at path: /var/log/DiagnosticMessages/ 2014.05.28.asl
    Disk Utility just finished with a bunch of lines that start off w/ either Unable to set owner and group on … or Unable to set permissions on ...
    I can still display the contents of the volumes in Finder and I'm able to access the files but I can't work w/ the volumes themselves as explained.
    Any ideas anyone?

    Thanks Lau for you comments.
    I need to install os8 because I need to run some old apps and I am using my os 9 for another computer I have.
    By the way, the HFS+ file system was suuported from OS 8.1 and after and so that is not an issue. Good idea though.
    And so I am back at my original question. It would appear that my OS X install disk doesn't like my blue and white G3's internal 12 GIG ATA drive and so I cannot format it with OSX Disk Utility. I would like to know why but for now I will just use OS 9 or OS8 drive setup. And so I have two choices: OS9 drive setup or OS8.5 Drive setup. Does it matter which I use? In other words is one better than the other? I will be later installing OS 8.6 onto this drive - and maybe OS 9 in the far future. I will try OS9's drive setup first.
    Yes, and so this is my most immediate question at this point:
    is there a difference between OS8.5 drive setup and OS9's Drive setup? (in terms or formatting a drive to install OS 8, 9 or even X maybe one day?) I will be using HFS+.
    And then my second question is my original question which is why doesn't my OS 10.1.5 Disk Utility select my 12 GIG ATA drive? (its greyed out - dimmed?)

  • Disk Utility will not format/erase/partition an unformatted scsi disk

    Well, I'm back with a RAID problem again. This time the powers that be sent me a Sun Microsystems StorEDGE A5200 RAID box (22 33gig disks). It's a fibre channel system, and is full of Seagate FC disks. The box only hooks up to my G5 Quad via the Apple Fibre channel card that I have hooked up. It's a dual channel card and both are plugged into the back of the RAID array.
    Now, here's what I have.....
    The Drives show up in both Disk Utility and Anubis
    The is only one drive formatted and it works fine.
    All the rest of the drives are unformatted (not just blank, but without any operating system on them, just like they were fresh out of the box)
    Attempting to Erase a disk results in the message
    Disk erase failed
    Disk erase failed with the error:
    Invalid Argument
    Attempting to Partition a disk results in the message
    Partition failed with the error:
    Invalid Argument
    Attempting to create a RAID set results in the message
    Creating RAID set failed with the error:
    Could not add a RAID disk to a RAID. (note there was no other RAID set)
    Only one disk in the array is formatted and it will respond to all of the functions in Disk Utility.
    I was told that I needed to do something using the command line, but that was pretty vague as to what I needed to do. Apparently I need some sort of superuser authority to get these drives formatted, and that's it's not documented any where.
    So folks, I leave it up to you again, what do I do?

    OK, I have found out much in the last few weeks.
    1 - Apple no longer supports SCSI, you may not format disks in any way using OS X. OS 9 also does not work on any of the G5 machines at least.
    2 - You can use Linux to do most of the work with SCSI, it is still supported, although there is little clear documentation on how to get it done. Linux is free and works very well with my G5 Quad. But it has a steep learning curve and it's not worth it for just formatting SCSI drives.
    What I found out about my SCSI drives turned out to be the core of all the problems I have had, and it was Linux that found the problem. Seems all of the drives I have but one have been formatted in such a way that only the proprietary operating system that formatted them would read them. 520k data blocks. I reformatted several of the drives to 256k blocks and they work fine now.
    Before I go out and start going though this for a few hundred more of these drives, my academic supplier found just as many drives that were specifically formatted for use in Sun RAIDs and are properly recognized by OS X, and with twice the drive space (current is 36gig, new ones are 73gig). He is sending me 44 of them (and a second RAID box)
    I'm hoping that this finally solves the problem and hope all will be working soon.

  • DIsk Utility will not recognize my drive to erase.

    I am trying to erase my hard drive to install a new OS. I will be installing either OS 8.6 onto the 12 GIG ATA internal hard drive - the original hard drive.
    I am using an OS 10.1 installer CD.
    (I thought that DIsk Utility would be a better hard drive formatting utility than OS 8's drive setup utility.)
    I first started up from the OS 10.1 installer CD and it first takes me through a few basic questions about the language (I chose English) and then a licencing question and I clicked agree. When it asks me which volume I would like to choose, both of my hard drives are shown but they are greyed-out (dimmed). When I hover over them with the mouse pointer, a small message appears to the left that says something like:
    "This hard drive is dimmed because the CD installs all the languages"
    This doesn't seem to make any sense. I was booted form the CD.
    Why can I not use this installer to erase my hard drive?
    This is a retail version of OSX with a white label. It came with two disks: OS9 and 10.1. The symptoms described above happened with the 10.1 disk. Next I will try OS 9. However I would like to know why my DIsk Utility on the OS 10.1 CD didn't show my drive as available. Any suggestions why the hard dirves were grayed out?

    Thanks Lau for you comments.

  • Disk Utility will not start

    Hello I need some help here.
    I am trying to format a new Western Digital 2tb my book essential. To do this I apparently need to open Disk Utility... but it will not open.
    the icon flashes for a second but then closes immediately. I have 15% of my harddrive free (hence getting the new hard drive to free up space).
    If I am told to use a start up disk or something... I have find the box and the disc etc... but if I use this will I lose everything on my mac book?
    I can't lose what I have on here, I had things time machine backed up on a drive which was damaged in my recent move... so losing things is not an option.
    thank you for your help!

    why do people partition things
    Don't confuse partitioning to create a volume on a drive with partitioning to create multiple volumes on a drive. The first is always necessary. The latter is something some people with Windows backgrounds are used to doing. With a Mac there are a few specific situations where partitioning into multiple volumes is useful, but otherwise it's not recommended or useful.
    what does -journalling- mean and should i be formatting to that
    For a long-winded explanation, see this:
    The short answer is that you should be formatting with journaling.
    how much space should i partition for time machine... if i should be doing that...
    Time Machine is one of the cases where partitioning is useful. By design Time Machine will consume all the space on its output volume. If you plan to put Time Machine data and other data on the same drive, you should partition the drive to keep those types of data separate. As for size, see item 1 of this post:
    thank you for your help!!
    I'm glad to be able to help.
