    Default How do I access files on my Hard Drive if my Acer Aspire One (with OSX) wont boot?

    How do I access files on my Hard Drive if my Acer wont boot?

    I have a Acer Aspire One installed with OS X (iAtkos 7) that no longer boots up but I have important files that I want to get off the hard drive

    Does anyone know how I can get to those files?

    Thank you

    Bob

    Im not sure if this will really help you but you can give it a shot

    Accessing linux partition from MAC and vice versa - Ubuntu Forums

    in either can you need to use linux to get those files off of their, you can download the most recent build of knoppix and start there. Im not really a tech guy so i can't really guide you much after this, but i do wish you luck sir

    take the drive out.
    whether it's IDE or SATA drive, you can use an IDE/SATA to USB converter. Hook it up to a real mac via usb and you should be able to access the drive to get to your stuff. It's the simpliest way for me.

    dtube, I'm guessing that you haven't messed with an Acer Aspire, hardware-wise. They're not the easiest machine to get at the drive on, at least that's the case with the little 9 inchers. They require just about complete bottom end disassembly.

    Try this Bob. Good luck!
