My hitachi drive in my 2.53 Unibody has just died this evening! Have tried repairing disk from disk utility whilst booting from the install disk and couldn't find the drive. Tried a clean install and it wont find the drive. Also I have tried resetting pram to no avail. I guess I will have to ring apple in the morning however I need to be back up and running tomorrow. What drive should I replace it with as I have no idea about this. Also is it pretty safe to say that my drive is no long gone or might there be a chance of getting some of the data back off it? I backed up a Uni project last night but have just lost one as well. Typical since I was looking at drives today in order to start using time machine and look what happens!! If anyone can help me out would be really appreciated! Thanks!
