tried Drive Utility and erase options are greyed out.
if I don't erase and reinstall snow leopard, it should write over everything BUT will it still be corrupt??
Where you using Disk Utility while booted from the Hard Drive, or booted from the Install DVD?
While booted from the hard drive.
I tried using the install disk but had an issue.
If I reinstall before erasing the hard drive, any chance of it still being corrupt?
The Disk needs repair or it'll be corrupt still.
