Well i was just using my 20" iMac G5 normally today when while I was half-way attaching a file in Yahoo Mail, I encountered my first kernel crash in my 3 years experience of using a Mac. And to top it off, my hard disk is gone and Apple was kind enough to send a replacement out ASAP. I'm still shocked as to why this happened as my Mac is only around 4 months old. Goes to show that even if your hard disk is new it is vital to backup your data. The problem now is that I want to try to recover my data on the hard disk using Data Rescue but the thing I don't get is how am I going to do it when I can't even boot into Mac OS X. Also, since the iMac G5 uses a SATA hard disk, I can't use a external enclosure since there are basically none! (If anyone has any links for this item it will be greatly appreciated!) Any suggestions guys?
