This is a tough problem. If you have a Mac formatted drive attached
to a machine booting the MacOS, it MUST have usable drivers on it,
or the machine will crash. The only ways I've ever heard of to fix
it are to stick it in a non-Mac machine and wipe the whole drive
to start over, or to plug in the drive after the boot is partially
finished. I really don't suggest trying to hot-plug a hard drive,
but it has been known to work sometimes...
