Hardware :: Internal Hard Disk Does Not Show In Startup Disk Options

OS X :: Unable;e To Boot From Internal Hard Drive / Use Disk Warrior To Repair Disk?

Apr 11, 2010

I am considering purchasing diskwarrior but want to make sure it can help my situation before I purchase it. My imac will not boot from the internal hard drive (Intel processor) When I use disk utility to try and repair the disk, I get error messages and it won't repair. I can see the HD but cannot repair it. When I connect using target mode with my mac book pro, the hard drive does not appear on my host (macbook pro) computer. I have reloaded OS X (Leopard) onto a firewire external drive and can boot my imac that way but I can not find my original internal Macintosh HD. Will disk warrior be able to help with this scenario. I would really like to access that internal Macintosh HD and retrieve my files.

Software :: HD Won't Show On Startup Disk?

Nov 26, 2008

I have an Imac 17" intel core duo 1.86 Gz, 512Mb ram. I put a new Hd because the other one died. When I go to disk utility I can see the HD. I formatted it as Macintosh HD and mounted it, however when i try to intall the OS using the original disks, it says "Software can't be installed on this computer". When i click on startup disk, the only thing i see there is the Mac OS DVD and Network start up, but no Hd at all. Some say maybe i don't have the original install disks but someone at the mac store said that the HD is not mounting and thats why the software can't be installed. Holding the Option Key at startup, only shows the Mac OS DVD. Am confuse why i can see the HD in disk Utility but in startup disk there is nothing.

OS X :: Disk Utility Cannot See Internal Hard Disc

Jun 5, 2009

I have had a problem for about a month whereby my MBP won't shut down, it just hangs after it has cleared the desktop and only the wallpaper is displayed. Now disk utility won't see the disk at all, and Software Update also does not find any updates. It checks for new software for ever. My mac starts up fine, and I can use it as normal.

OS X :: USB Boot Unable To Show Hard Disk

Jan 3, 2011

I've created a Snow Leopard boot disk using this method link. I created it on a 16GB CF Disk. I've tried it twice. First time I formatted the disk as eXfat with 1 partition. Next time I used Mac OS Extended for a 7Gig partition and fat32 for the rest.

Upon boot I get the normal install stuff like I do with the DVD, but then no hard disk shows up. I thought it was because of the eXfat which is why I tried again. I looked into the system profiler and I can see my seagate hard disk, but under disk utility it doesn't exist. My Sata DVD drive shows up though. If I boot off of the DVD I can see and install to my hard disk.

I'm trying to make a USB Disk because I'm planning on getting a SSD and I will be removing the Dvd drive.

This is a Mid 2009 Macbook.

MacBook Pro :: Disk Utility Says Internal Hard Drive Is Failing?

Dec 28, 2010

However, my hard drive appears to be running fine - haven't noticed any degradation of performance since receiving the warnings two days ago. And HD is still running quiet (no strange mechanical noises I'm accustomed to hearing prior to a failure). Nevertheless, I'm installing a new HD tomorrow and recloning it from a backup external drive (operating from external until then).

PowerBook :: External USB / Firewire Holder For Internal Hard Disk

Jun 29, 2014

I want to get one of those hard disk 'holders' that allows you to plug an internal-type hard disk into the USB or Firewire port of another laptop. I want to know if they need to be specific to the type of hard disk/laptop or if they're more of a one-size-fits-all type of thing. The hard disk is a solid state type that I installed in a mid-2010 model MacBook which has now failed. I want to connect it to a 2005-model PowerBook G4. Can this be done and what do i need to buy to do it?

MacBook :: Replacing Hard Drive - Nothing Show Up In Disk Utility

Aug 31, 2010

The HDD in my wife's black MacBook (2007, I think) won't boot up. I've run Disk Utility and have decided it's pretty much dead. I have a Carbon Copy backup, so the data is fine. I've tried replacing the drive twice now, and the MacBook simply won't "see" the new drives. When I install the drive, nothing shows up in Disk Utility (run either from the install disc or the Carbon Copy backup drive in a USB enclosure).

The new drives are formatted (I even copied the bootable backup to one of them), and the computer sees them just fine if I install them in a USB enclosure and hook them up that way. When I put them in the computer, though, no dice. Her old, corrupted HDD still showed up in Disk Utility when I reinstalled it, but the new drives don't.

OS X :: Disk Warrior Unable To Replace Startup Disk / Connect To TC To Transfer Across DW's Preview

Feb 18, 2009

Yesterday I switched on my macbook (Leopard) and got the flashing question mark. Ran all the resets and booted with disk utility which encountered an 'Invalid B-tree Node' when attempting to repair the disk. Additionally, the SMART status was verified.

I ran DW 4 last night, and performed the hardware tests which reported that the disk was operating like normal. The majority of my media files and additional work is backed up to my Time Capsule but I still have a folder of papers that are relatively new, and wanted to retrieve. While DW managed to reconstruct the majority of my drive (there seemed to be 15g missing - but it's just music files) including this folder, it couldn't replace the disk, as it encountered 'Serious Disk Malfunctions'.

So, via the Disk Preview I want to transfer my saved folders to my TC, but I don't appear to be able to locate it (via ethernet) through DW - even if it's connected when I boot up in DW. So, first request is: Can I connect to my TC to transfer across in DW's preview?

Second is: What are my options if DW can't replace? Do I need to take it into Apple and get a new HD (it's out of warranty)? It's possibly worth noting that I'm a student and have absolutely no money - so cost effective options are a bonus!

MacBook Pro :: Folder With Question Mark At Startup - Disk 0 Showing In Disk Utility

Jun 24, 2014

I get this question mark along with a folder when starting up. I tried holding down the option key when turning on the power and then I get an internet recovery along with a globe. I click on the arrow below it and it takes maybe 15 minutes to start up. Then i get this disk utilities screen. I'm now unable to do anything. When going into disk utility, disk 0 shows with Mac OS X base system underneath it. All the clickable buttons are faded out. Is there something wrong with the hardrive? and where could i get this fixed? There isn't a warranty on it.

IMac Intel :: Lacie External Hard Drive Doesn't Show Up - Sporadically Appears In Disk

Feb 19, 2009

Odd stufff, I have a 500 gig Lacie ext HD that my user uses on her Vista machine...

I am setting up a replacement for the Vi$ta machine, which is a 24 inch imac.

I plugged in the ext HD and nothing happened after I powered on the ext HD.

I checked disk utility and it showed up but as a 2TB size ext HD...

I unplugged the Lacie and plugged it back in and all the info showed up correctly.

But ALL the buttons under "First Aid" are greyed out so I cant verify permissions, disk, or repair disk or permissions.

Information:
imac 24 inch
Mac OS X (10.5.8)
