Replaced internal hard drive, won't mount, get I/O error. Why?
I followed the very good instructions from this site to replace the internal hard drive on my iMac Intel 20" 2105 with a 2 TB Western Digital SATA green drive. When I try to install Tiger 10.4.4, the new internal drive does not show up. If I go to disk utilities and try to format, erase, partition the new drive (which can be seen), I get an I/O error. I took the drive back out of the computer, put it in an external drive, formatted it, put it back in the computer, get the same problem. It shows up as a 14.6 TB unformatted drive that I cannot do anything with.
This is similar to a question raised in this previous thread:
The answers there talked about Snow Leopard (which I don't think I can use with this iMac), as well as someone saying to jump pins 5 and 6 to slow down the drive (but no one ever said if they did this to successfully solve the problem). Also, the last question by Chip about his drive showing up as 7.3 gb and target mode not working was never answered.
Therefore, I am still at a loss as to what I should try. Can anybody help?
