Sounds like the file system is corrupt! I would tryt his but be sure you follow the directions! Just follow the little yellow arrows that they have in the screen shots. CLICK HERE

no i cant. safe mode would be a big improvement beasuse all i can get to now is the potion where it asks which boot to perform. theres 5 options~~~1)network boot 2)safe mode 3)safe mode with comand 4)normal startup 5)last working config.~~~~ they all end up taking me into the umountbale boot volume screen
