No its only 6 months old. And after 10.4 crashed I used vista for 3 moths on internal HD. No issues so hd is not bad. I got go have dinner now. After I get back I'll see it some more.

I can't stress this enough but get a backup of that drive ASAP!

If you don't have an external then burn stuff to DVD/CD or even upload as much as possible to something like mozy.com (free accounts have a 2gb limit) before going ahead with anymore Leopard attempts.

Doesnt matter how old the drive is, it can die. Hdd in my wifes macbook died when it was about 8months old. And sadly, even after me repeatedly telling her to at least make a backup of her pictures she didnt. Make a backup before its too late.

"A smart man learns from his mistakes, but a truly wise man learns from other people's mistakes."
- quote from unknown (but I learned it from my grandpa ;) )

Most of us had to learn the hard way how important it is to always make backups. Most of us learn after only one major loss of data. Be wise, learn from our mistakes so you don't have to make your own.

Did you ever think of taking it to an apple store?
apple will get it installed!

Yep, I had the internal drive on a new Macbook die after about 5 months or so. I've seen messages similar to the one you got on a G5 years ago, and the problem was a corrupt drive (gradually going to the Hard Drive graveyard)

As suggested in other forums I forgot to do the photo said. Disk partition reformat and first aid. It obviously didn't automatically reformat properly.

All is good now. Installed fine.
