an "I/O error". Would be a little surprised on an '09 model, but that def could be a cable problem along with "all" the symptoms you have described trying to install the OS could by I/O issues rather than drive issues.

I'd go back into the case, unplug the hard drive cable then plug it back in and test before I ordered another one.

And if you have the retail disk of 10.6, there is no reason to be installing 10.5 first.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
