Want to confirm actual Hard Drive Failure before buying another (in case I just needed to be more tech saavy in fixing this issue). A friend gave me their MacBook running Tiger 10.4 cause it crashed. Installation CD does not recognize the HD and all options grayed out so I cannot erase and restore. S.M.A.R.T. status says "Not Supported". Firmware version is 3.1965. I tried booting up in Safe Mode but nothing. Hard Drive does not make those clicking noises so I am hopeful it is not completely fried. OPTIONS PLEASE? Like...A different way of booting up? (like getting a firewire and connecting it to my iMac?) Anyone here understand the guts of our OS X systems and can help me get this sad old MacBook to recognize its hard drive? THANKS SO MUCH IN ADVANCE!
