Question about Apple MacBook 13"White /2.0Ghz Intel Core2 Duo White/2GB (2x1gb)/80GB/SuperDrive (Z0DT) Mac Notebook
Worked fine this afternoon. Went to put it on this evening...absolutely nothing. I think this MAC is a lemon. I had this problem about six months ago and the whole hard drive had to be replaced. Help
If you have the mac os install cd, try physically taking out the hard drive from your battery bay (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8c6ckjy-gdY) close up the bay and turn on your mac without the hard drive in place, while the chime is heard press and hold the alt/option key to get a list of bootable devices, ie. the install cd. Select the cd when the cd loads, go to the menu at the top and select startup disk, follow instructins to get your computer to atomatically start from the cd on next restart.
Select the restart option by cancelling th install.
AFTER THE COMPUTER SHUTS OFF IT WILL RESTART, DO NOT LET IT RESTART, TURN IT BACK OFF IMMEDIATELY.
Now take out the battery-bay again and put the hard drive back in. Put everything back together and turn the computer on again. This time it should automatically load the install cd if it is stil in the drive. When it loads the installation you should be able to find a way to either use disk repair to put a startup image back on the hard drive or completely reinstall the OS on the hard drive (which it will recognize now)..
If yu have any other questions let me know i can give you a more detailed explanation if necessary
