Hello. You need to reformat your hard drive with an external USB set up. If you do not have an external hard drive case with USB then try another hard drive. Here is a link to show you the one I use to reformat Xbox 360 and PS3 hard drives.

Sometimes the drives will not reformat due to a physical problem inside of the hard drive though. But either replacing it or reformating it will always solve this problem.

I hope this helps. Good luck and happy gaming!!

Hello,

This means your MAC is having a kernal panic, which could be caused by a failed update, a driver or program that is incompatible. You may need to start your MAC with your system cd/dvd and run the disk checker to repair hard drive errors and file permission errors.

I'm not sure what OSX version you are running but you could also try the steps outlined in this apple knowledge base:http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?path=Mac/10.5/en/8965.html

If this does nothing, you will need to take it into a apple store for servicing, or reinstall the OS (you may loose your programs and data depending on how your reinstall)

The problem might be a loose connection or bad configuration file (an autostart ini file that makes the hard-drive do certain things when plugged in) in the root folder of your hard drive. Are you able to connect to it sometime or it doesn't work at all? If you can read it, try backing up all your data and format the hard drive and copy back the backup again. But remember to copy only the needed files and not the system or ini files.

If the failed hard disk drive is replaced with the exact same capacity, RPM and make of hard drive, then the array can be rebuilt. Raid 0 cannot be rebuilt as each drive contains half of the data, If RAID 1 then can be rebuilt as data on each drive is an exact copy. However if combination of RAID 0 and RAID 1 then can be rebuilt. It's best really to handel this hands on, I recommend taking it to a computer technician especially if the information on it is important.

Thanking you

Wont boot on its own, wont boot with install disc,


As the hard disk appears to be showing up when you boot up using the install disc, I would suspect that the system is somewhat corrupted. You could reinstall the system again and if you are happy starting from scratch and wiping the hard drive select this option failing that and there is some data on the imac you could install using the preserve user data. A fresh install should sort out any problems. Hope this helps.

First place your recovery disk in the cd drive. Then hold down the power on/off button for 15 seconds. The machine will power down. Then restart normally and reinstall from the disk.
