OK, heres the problem. I have the imac g4. For some
reason, I must have downloaded a pretty bad virus, my
mac won't start up. All it shows is the blink "?/mac os9 icon." I
did the option restart, and the hard drive won't show
up. I put in the hardware detection problem disc, and
it said my hard drive was fine. Then I put in my
Panther install disc just to see what happened, and
when it says where do you want to install it, the hard
drive doesn't show up. I tried using disc utility to
repair it, but it couldn't, saying that one of the
volumes is missing or something like that.
So i'm guessing my cpu can't read or find my hard
drive for some reason.
I also used Disk Warrior to repair and it got to a certain point and just stopped. i left it on over night and nothing.
is techtool pro any different, and do you thing that would work, or should i just take it to a technician and hopefully they can save some of the stuff that was on my HD. I cant use a firewire HD because if my hd is not showing up, then i cant save anything.
If you can help me out, I would forever be in your
debt. Please help me out if you can.
