So, the situation is the following:
I have a full working, assembled iBook 12" 1,2Ghz system with Leopard.
I start it pressind the 'T' button, till the firewire icon appears.
I have a disassembled iBook 14" with an 1,3Ghz logicboard.
If I connect it through firewire cable with the 12" iBook, and switch it on pressing 'option' key, I see the 12" iBook HDD, and DVD.
BUT! If I plug a HDD (installed a Leopard on it) to the 14" logicboard, it couldn't recognise it.
If I connect the HDD (installed a Leopard on it) to another iBook, it will boot, so the HDD is OK.
MAX GR today suggested me the following troubleshooting:
"- Hard Drive not detected, optical drive detected
Connector of the Hard Drive or the Laptops interface may be damaged. Insert Hard Drive into another computer to check to see if the Hard Drive works. If it works, the Laptops interface may be broken. If it doesn't work, replace the Hard Drive or use the one from the iBook 12" "
So, I pick up a working DVD, plugged it to the 14" iBook logicboard, and it worked! I could load an install disk with it. Unfortunatelly the plugged HDD still won't be seen.
In that case, the "Insert Hard Drive into another computer to check to see if the Hard Drive works. If it works, the Laptops interface may be broken." case happened.
Otherwise the HDD connentor was suspicious, because the cable plug comes out very easy from it, and I could hear noise from HDD only when I press the plug.
I hope, that if a controller chip can handle firewire, optical drive, the HDD controller part should also working.
In this case, I only need to replace the bad connector, needn't I?
