Hi and Welcome. My Name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you today with your question.

We can rebuild your iPhoto Library with a third party application named iPhoto Library Manager. Download it from here (just download the trial version) : http://www.fatcatsoftware.com/iplm/

Open iPhoto Library Manager application and rebuild your iPhoto Library with it. After rebuilding, open iPhoto.

Please let me know if that didn't work, so we can continue troubleshooting.

Optional : If you want, I can fix your issue remotely for a small additional fee. Let me know if you want to do that.

Sorry but I have no idea where to find the Macintosh HD :(

Expert:  Ashik replied 3 years ago.
Macintosh HD is your hard disk. You can find it on desktop or in Finder (in left column). It may have another name like Mac HD, My HD, HDD etc
