Hello Guys ! ..
I had this "folder with question mark sign" . I was told HD died.
So bought a new one and used the installation disk .Sytem showed the blue screen and when i went in...it doesnt recognise the new HD ! which i had jsut put in. I checked health of HD sperately, it is all fine.
I connectd the new HD to USB via connector and used the installtion disk . This time it was recognised by macbook and i proceded to format , partition and installed new OS X . If i remove the instalation disk and keep the HD coonected to USB ,system boots fine as noraml mac .
Now , when i m putting this same HD back into the back of laptop case , where it belongs , system again fails to boot ! I put the installtion disk , system boots but doesnot show the HD again !!!
Any help guys !! Thx in advance ...
May be the previous disk was not bad at all
