| I know it has been a long time.. but here is what I just did..
Took apart the computer.
Plugged the drive into another MAC using a USB to Sata connector.
Initialized and Mac Formatted the new drive.
Put in the OSX cd, and installed OSX onto the new drive.
I put it back into the old computer, and still get the same screen.
It cycles between these 2 icons.
Is it the lack of temp sensor? Does the bios not detect a drive over a certain size, or something? What gives?
The good mac booted completely from the drive, I setup a user, connected to wifi etc with it before powering down and putting it into the other one.
