Re: Disk screwed up with ybin


the yaboot.conf I posted was just an example for I can't properly remember,
not to mention read, my yaboot.conf anymore. The only thing I know for sure
is, that macosx resides on /dev/hda3 (not hda4 like in this probably faulty
example conf). Consider it as a typical dual boot conf without any tweaks or

Well, I *hope* the disk is not faulty. I can't imagine that the plug somehow
disconnected. Either a disk has a power connection or not. Or it has a slack
joint. But then the disk is present, not present and so on. The macosx disk
tool (booted from the rescue CD) recognizes a 20 GB disk. Besides there are
the dmesg messages. But in the end I'll check that anyway because I see a

Yeah, as long as I am able to get hold of the disk I'll have a look at it
with fdisk.

Right, no yaboot, no OS at all. White screen means just a white screen. No
apple logo, nothing. OpenFirmware works though.

So that is what I have in mind so far:

- target mode with another mac
- disassambling the disk/checking the cable connections
- putting the disk in another computer
- checking it with testdisk (hope it can deal with macosx stuff)
- putting my old disk (with macosx) or even a new one in the mac to see
whether it has another
