    Hi Again Mitch 751!

    Are you sure you are using the correct install disc?

    Is this the same issue, that you posted HERE?

    Mitch 751,

    Are you able to run the Apple Hardware Test, to check if the Hard Drive is failing or failed?

    Hi folks

    I have the same problem with a 2nd generation G5 iMac. I tried to erase and install Tiger (retail version bought from Mac Store after consultation with Mac support), failed and hung up for 6 hours until I switched the thing off and my hard drive icon no longer appears in the startup list. I can't even reach options stage on install procedure - my hard drive icon has GONE! So no utilities from the Install disk. The mistake I may have made was to try the Unix erase and Install procedure.

    I have tried to get in using my mac mini as target drive but this seems not to offer a way out of the s**t! - can't find a way of reinstating a hard drive icon for the iMac in the startup folder.

    Any bright ideas out there or do I need to get a new Apple formatted hard drive?

    Many thanks.

    I have given up, and have send the Mac book for service, they said it would take them 10 days to fix it.
