    Error when i try to install OS
    Hello
    My girlfriends mac went down few months ago , ive tryied to rebuild the harddisk with diskwarrior 4 but when I try to rebuild it it says
    '' The directory of the disk '' ... '' cannot be rebuilt - The disk is still in use. Quit all other applications or restart from the diskwarrior disc and then try rebuilding again. If you report this error please mention the error code ( 2153, 4903 )

    It seems that the Hard Drive is bad and will have to be replaced.

    Did you try booting from the OS disk and using Disk Utility to reformat and then reinstall the OS?
    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

    Hello and thanks for the answer.
    Yes I did try to boot from the OS disk , the drive is red ? Does that mean that the drive is broken ? And what kinda drives can i replace it with ?

    That question can't be answered without telling us what Mac she has.
    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.
