the hdd in originally in the ibook was dead as a doornail, so i swapped the drive out for one of my (many) working IDE laptop drives. however when i boot from the osx installer cd distil doesn't show/detect any drives. on further inspection i found that the drive was not spinning up! pulling the hdd from the ibook and checking it confirms that it does indeed work, but when i put it back into the ibook and try to boot ... nothing, the drive just sits their. as far as i can tell their are one of two things going on here 1: the orange IDE to motherboard cable is shot 2: the on motherboard IDE controller is dead any ideas?
