Hard drive appears intermitantly, doesn't boot 99% of the time
Ok, ive been working at this for a while...
I have tried everything, including taking the thing apart...pram, starting from system CD etc.
Symptoms: i hear the chime every time, takes a while, but i get the folder and ?. Occasionally it will startup properly. I use disk utility and it says the hard drive is fine.
I took it apart to see if there was a loose connection or something, and everything appears fine. I also put the original memory back in to see if it had something to do with that. Nope.
I boot off the system and the drive doesn't show up at all. Wait a bit, try again, boot off CD and the hard drive shows up. Run disk first aid and it does not report any problems.
Is this a good question?
