Why doesn't my new harddrive show up in diskutil?


I installed a new HD in my mini recently after the old one failed. But I can't see it in diskutil or the installer when I boot up from DVD (I tried all tiger, leopard and snow leopard disks).

First I thought I bought a broken harddrive or there is some problem with the mini.

I managed to boot xubuntu from a livecd on the very same mini. And there I can see the HDD fine; I can format it, read write ... whatever I want to do.

I can also connect the mini in target mode to my macbook and there I can access the HDD fine too.

So I installed snow leopard on the HDD via target mode. Now when I boot up I get a stop sign from the mini.

I'm puzzled - if there would be a hardware problem, why does the disk work in ubuntu?

Sounds like your new drive is to fast for your machine. Try using the jumpers to slow it down to 1.5. Do a web search for the name of your drive and jumpers to find the correct ones to jump.

+ The jumper configuration for limiting the hard drive to 1.5GBs should be in a diagram on the hard drive's label. The jumper pins are located on the same side of the drive where the cable(s) plug into it.
