Or, he could have a 250 GB hard drive with unpartitioned space. (free space)
It's unlikely it could have gotten past quality control that way, but who knows?

(BTW, that many bad sectors on any hard drive would cause total failure.)

To the OP:

Boot the machine with your original install media (Leopard DVD 1). After it boots, escape from the install program and select Utilities - Disk Utility from the top menu.

Post the information that Disk Utility shows concerning your hard drive.

Regards.
