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. Help!!!! I know it has not died, only it was harmed by a bad, self made Mountain Lion install USB stick. What to do??
