Our iMac 20" 2133 did nothing after a close hit of Lightning
Will replacing the harddisk be of any help? If not what would?
Is this a good question?
Ouch! Sadly lightning often does permanent damage to the system as a whole. At this point I would speak to your insurance agent on getting the system (as well as anything else damaged) replaced.
To help prevent damage in the future during a lightning storm. Pull the power plugs out of your equipment from the outlets and if you have a modem or network connection disconnect them as well until the storm has passed.
You may want to have an electrician check your buildings grounding and wiring. It's also a good idea to have the equipment plugged into a good quality surge suppressor and/or UPS to handle power line spikes.
