    Hi,

    While DJing a few days ago, my Mac freezed.
    I had to reboot.

    On start-up, it flashed the 'where'is the os' question mark.

    I figured OS X had been wiped out for some reason
    and got myself into re-installing the whole thing.

    when prompted for a destination drive for OS X,
    I had to choose among a list of ZERO drives.

    I then unsuccessfully tried Disk Utility, Norton Sys. Works,
    Disk Warrior.
    reseted the PRAM.

    The HD is definitly gone.

    Any ideas?

    thanks,

    K

    Try

    reset-nvram
    set-defaults
    reset-all

    in Open Firmware.
