    How to rename internal hard disk and get it to mount
    Running 10.4.11 on an IMAC (PPC)
    Internal hard disk will not mount
    Booted from an external firewire drive
    Internal hard disk using disk utility show as dis 0s3 but is grey'd
    Click mount but 0s3 doesn't mount
    Clicked FIRST AID, then VERIFY get error "invalid parent Cname in that record
    Clicked REPAIR DISK
    get error "Disk utility stopped repairing "disk 0s3" because the following error was encountered
    The underlying task reported failure or exit
    Tried resetting PRAM
    Deceased the unit and reset the SMU
    Tried the above again-same results

    Tried using TERMIAL and entering the following command
    "diskutil rename disk 0s3 MyDisk"
    get error encountered renaming disk: Invalid request
    tried "mount 0s3" in TERMINAL
    got error "unknown special file or file system"

    How do I rename hard disk & how do I get it to mount

    Probably by replacing it with a new one. It sure sounds like your hard drive has problems when Disk Utility can not repair it and it won't mount.
