View Full Version : Brand new ssd drive dissapeared after clean install!!

Dec 12, 2012, 06:50 PM
After hours of replacing the old drive with an expensive SSD from ozc, my iMac 3,06 looked happy. The SSD showed up, so I reformatted it (extended journaled) before starting the clean install of Mountain Lion.

That looked good untill the text showed up which said something in line of; that some elements of Mountain Lion were unable to install.

There was only one thing: quit and try again.

But after that I was not able to find the SSD drive; not with disk utility from a start up Snow Leopard dvd, not with a Diskwarrior4.3 disk.


I know it has not died, only it was harmed by a bad, self made Mountain Lion install USB stick.

What to do??
