Macbook Pro HD Failing.....

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
It seems like my macbook has damaged my harddrives....it started it one when the os stopped working and failed to repair. So I replaced it with my old hard drive and now the OS can't even install on that one because of some errors......where does this madness end and how do I fix it?

what kind of errors? where did you get your OSX download from? what format is the hard drive currently in? i think a delete of all partitions using a linux boot disc or formatting it to the correct file system would solve any issues related with hard drive. its a pretty simple little thing hard drives are, its the protocols you have to look out for, and apple is pretty picky

Oh linux works perfectly fine when I boot from a rEFIt usb stick. The hard drive is just slightly dying.......Even on a clean wipe with apple friendly partisans, OS X refuses to install from cd or usb.
