I believe the internal harddrive on my Imac G5 has failed as the computer is stuck on a gray screen at startup and I am unable to repair the disk using disk utility on the OSX installation cd. I have the machine connected to another working mac with a firewire cable and am attempting to access the harddrive through target mode. The non-working mac starts in target mode but does not mount on the host computer. How can this be troubleshooted?

Make sure you start the G5 iMac in Target Disk Mode first, then connect it to the other Mac.  If that doesn't work then, I'm pretty certain the hard disk is dead.




Good luck.
