    Start up problem......i e it won't

    I downloaded and installed updates on my Macbook Pro at the weekend and now it doesn't boot up. I've done disk utlity repair etc but the drive won't mount. 'Invalid content in journal' is what I have apparently. What do I do now? Any ideas? I have a partitioned drive with Bootcamp.

    Were the update for the Mac side of things, or the latest updates from the pc. side of things?

    Also would be curious as to what os you are using as well.

    Did you try a start-up reboot?

    I've tried everything recommended on the Apple Support site. Next thing is to try a restore from the Time Capsule when I get back home tomorrow. If that doesn't work I'm not absolutely sure what to do next.
