    Hey guys my 2008 A1237 Macbook Air's HD died and I sprung for the 120gb on IfixIT. No matter what I have tried though on boot-up disk utility doesn't recognize the Hard Drive. I have tried plugging it in over and over and I get nothing. Any tips on what I am missing or could try?

    So if you boot from a DVD or Snow Leopard disk it doesn't show up in Disk Utility?

    Nope I get nothing. The only thing that makes sense is that the hard drive was DOA.
