|Hi Trig, |
if it cannot find the hard disk, it cannot boot, UNLESS there is another bootable device (CD?) that is earlier in the list of bootable devices in the bios.
If you look at pages 4 and 5 of the manual Mike provided the link for, it appears removing the disk is not difficult. However, as advised there, care must be taken with the mylar strip as they are not sturdy.
Disconnecting and reconnecting devices/circuit boards etc. cleans the electrical contacts and often cures the problem.
Please advise back on progress.
Good Luck - Keep us posted.
