The Hard Drive Saga
Ok so the computer worked when I picked it up last night. Ok I didn't actually turn it on but two techies said that it was good to go. But when I turned it on this am I got a white screen of death with a single icon featuring a folder with a question mark.
So, after a couple restarts, I grab my systems disk and try to boot off of that. It starts up and wants to install OSX - ok at least it's forward progress even tho the boffins said that they did this yesterday. Then I get the message that really put the sinking feeling in my stomach. The install wizard came up with a standard "Please select the drive where you want me to install to the software" only there are no drives to select from.
So it's back in the shop and I've got the fingers crossed.
