    I have a G5 powermac, and my hard drive crashed. I have two drives though, and I'm not sure which chassy the crashed drive is in. Is there a way to find out which drive is the damaged drive other than physically removing one and booting from an external to see if I got the right one?

    Were the 2 drives different sizes, or brands? Just find the one that matches the size, or brand of the HD that crashed (Im assuming your system drive)
