Hi all, today I got a secondhand MacBook, great machine and worked like a charm testing it... but when I got home I tried reinstalling it and partitioned the HDD, and it dissapeared at the prompt where to install MacOSX.
So I started up DiskUtil and there it was again, but had issues, something with the B-Tree, and could not be helped.
After a few tries I repartitioned it again and then it worked, so my question is, what could be wrong.... anyone?

Burn the candle at both sides, half the time...but twice the light.
QUOTE Thanks
