searched in the forum but nothing similar came up recently, hoping I'm not the only one with this bad luck. so, the thing is as follows:
my system is 2010 Macbook Pro 15", 8G RAM, running osx 10.8.4, fusion installation was fine. I have a boot camp win8 pro already installed and working fine. when I tried to use fusion to start my bootcamp win8, it shows this message as attached.
sorry that I'm using a Chinese system, the message just says something like "operation to the file /dev/rdisk0s4 failed",it seems that it could find this file. Windows actually booted, but can not input password, and cursor dose not work.
can any one help?
hi thanks for the prompt reply.
sadly, I tried all the steps in the article but the message still shows. though, after did the steps, sometime I was able to input password and get into the system, but it will just hang.
anything else i can try?
Could you please attach your host's /var/log/system.log? The error message you are seeing may indicate a problem with your host's hardware, in which case there will be I/O Error messages in that system.log file.

He already told you where it was: /var/log/system.log
Just copy and paste the following command in a Terminal (/Applications/Utilities/Terminal) and then press Enter.
grep "I/O error" /var/log/system.log
It will output to the Terminal all lines in the system.log file that has "I/O error" in it. Output such as kernel: disk0s4: I/O error is indicative of a falling HDD. If you have output such as that and aren't backed up then do it before doing anything else!
