I've had OS X 10.5.8 running for a couple of months now and I haven't touched my Dell Mini 9 for about a month. When I went to use it again, it sat in the boot page (black screen) trying to load the OS off the SSD
drive. It does the loading from disk and the ... but returns an Operating System Cannot Be Found or OS doesn't exist.
What would cause this? I'm assuming my SSD
has gone bad or the OS just became unstable. I'm going to try and install Snow Leopard at some point over this holiday weekend and see if my drive is totally b0rked.
Anyway, is there a way to determine what the actual cause was before I potentially waste my time trying to install an OS that won't work anyway?
Dell Mini 9, 1 GB Ram, standard issue hardware (BT
, Webcam, WiFi (no 3G)) etc.
