Default System Not Found - 08-31-2009, 09:52 PM

Please see this thread first:
Operating system not found

I pulled the drive and reseated it in case it was loose. When I boot from the USB drive, only the USB drive shows up. I tried to re-install OSX but when I try to partition the drive, which DOES show up in Disk Utility, I get:

Partition Failed:
Partition failed with the error:
Input/output error

Is this a hardware problem?

Your SSD is most likely dead, you might as well try and re-seat the SSD to see ifs its a dodgy connection but its most probably dead.
