Just got back from a few days away, and on my return my PowerMac G5 is no longer seeing its boot drive.

 

I tried rebooting from the instal DVD and running Apple Hardware Test, but it gives everything a tick and comes up with...

 

Default boot device:      Hard Drive:

                                      Serial-ATA bus: 0, ID: 0

 

Not sure whether this means it likes it, or it's not seeing the drive at all...

 

The drive never appears on the desktop, and if I start up holding Alt to select the startup drive, it doesn't appear as an option.

 

Have had a look inside, and made sure the drive connectors are in place - they seem fine - what's my next move?


G5 PPC Dual 2.3, Mac OS X (10.4.11), 2.5 GB DDR SDRAM
