So I thought it's time to replace the internal hdd of my mac mini with an ssd.
But I messed up a few things up.
I was setting up the hdd connected by usb to a total of 4 partitions, first one a very small (30MB) hfs one with the boot.img on and the other partitions 2xsfs/1xpfs and copied over the old hdd content. Then I pulled out the old disk out and inserted the new hdd.
Power on and - nothing. There's this drawer symbol with a question mark on it and that#s it.
Ok I thought, let's boot from cd and look what's going on. But the mini refused to boot from cd. It spins up, but does not recognize the cd.
Then I booted into OS X via a firewire drive.
I see (and can access) the small boot partition of the new drive (so electricially it seems okay).
If I insert the MorphOS 3.9 CD under OS X, that OS tells me I just inserted a blank CD - strange. For comparision I put in a scartchy mp3 cdr - no prob, OX X eats it. I put if some other non MorphOS cd, OS swallows it. Then I put in an older MorphOS CD (2.6) - gets refused.
I checked the MorphOS 3.9 CDR on my powerbook, no issues at all.
Someone an idea what I should do (and preferable w/o rewsapping the hdds, as the screws don#t get better..)
