Hi all, I got an Apple macbook for repair which wont boot and shows a question mark in a folder. It will boot from CD so I ran the disk utility but it won't show the hard drive. I removed the hard drive and connected it to a universal IDE/SATA USB adapter and connected it to my PC. I got the windows 'ding dong' when I plugged it in but it does not show in my computer. Also it does not show in the disk managment console but it does install with no errors and show in device manager.
I know its Apple and its a different format to a PC but it should display the disk in disk managment, should it not? And give me the options to format etc...
Any ideas would be a help, or intelligent guesses, my guess is that its shagged which would be a shame as the chap has lots of data he didn't back up! Ha! Ha! Ha! Evil boy!
The drive is a Fujitsu MHV2120BH, CA06672-B55600AP, 120GB SATA 2.5
