Of all the computers and installation disks I own, this is the one I can not find! after years of use with no problems, yesterday after completing a CCC backup, the eternal revolving beach ball appeared. I eventually forced quit, but upon restart the flashing question mark appeared on a grey screen. I have attempted all recommended solutions for restart. I can boot from my external CCC copy, but when trying to restore, it does not show my internal disk as being mountable.


If I purchase a replacement hard drive, will I still need the original installation disks?  HELP!
