    I am attempting to fix my friend's Rev A macbook air. He took it to a genius bar and they quoted him £210 to fix it (£151 + vat for the HD and £24+vat for labour). Diagnosis was it needed a new HD.

    I bought this from ebay, 99.9% sure it's the correct drive:

    A little bit cheaper as well! Anyhow, I've followed an ifixit guide and switched the HD's, seemed relatively straight forward. When I boot from my Lion USB, I go into disk utility and the hard drive does not appear. I tried putting the old one back in but that also doesn't show up.

    Anyone have any ideas as to what the issue could be? I was careful to put the corresponding screws back in the right place and all connections seem to be solid and correct
