I have been attempting to reinstall OSX on my 10v by booting into the boot-132 CD, then booting from the retail Leopard CD. It worked the first time around, though it crashed after I tried to perform a software update. However, I no longer can boot from my external drive. I installed Ubuntu to see if I could debug the problem and maybe install the drivers(I had installed them first on the stock xp os before I installed over it). Even now, in Ubuntu, I can not use the drive. It is recognized, but always says there is no media when I try to mount it.
What I need to know is how can I get my drive to atleast read disks and hopfully be able to boot from them.
My drive is a LG Super Multi Rewriter (GE20)
Any help is much appreciated.
