Prepping the Disk for Tiger

I installed Mac OS X Tiger today... once I got the harddrive repaired. It wasn't repairable by the Disk Utility tool that comes with the installer so to increase the visibility of the page that helped me out I'll blog about it.

I was getting two different kinds of errors. First was the Overlapped Extent Allocation error. Chris Anderson has wrote a section called Manually fix Overlapped Extent Allocation Errors without Diskwarrior over on The Mac Help Desk that took care of it. Then there was the Invalid volume free block count error. It turns out that the first command mentioned by Chris fixes this one (fsck -fy).
