    I was just checking Permissions, etc with Disk Utility by starting up with my Install disk and Disk Utility isn't showing my Hard Drive!!??? When I try and start up my iMac it show a flashing question mark on a Folder. I have tried starting up from Diskwarrior Disk but that also doesn't show my Hard Drive??!! :confused:

    this happened to one of our office drives a couple weeks ago. same machine too. about 7 months old. took it to the apple store. they replaced it, but any data that was not backed up was gone. $2100 if we wanted data retrieval. Let me know what happens. we're buying another western digital drive and trying a chip swap to see if that works.
