- Is this new hard drive already partitioned?
- What file system does/do the partition(s) have?
I have a early 2005 Power Mac G5, my current Maxtor HD crashed so i decide to replace it with a 320GB Western Digital Blue and it does not show up on the boot menu.
I've tried to change the settings on the new HDD with jumper on all the combinations and in both bays and still does not show on boot menu.
the weird thing is my old HDD does show on boot with the circular arrow and the right pointing arrow
the issue with old HDD is "Runtime corruption" ive read that if you reinstall a fresh copy of the OS X it wipes everything out and will restore or solve the issue, i've tried that but i put my copy of OS X and few seconds later the optical drive spit it out like it does not read it..
Any ideas???? anyone??
