no entry sign on OS reinstall
Did a reinstall from internet of mountain Lion and now get no entry sign...
Btw, the disc appears fine, in target mode it can be booted from by another computer...
Do you have access to a second mac which has a Thunderbolt connection and a Thunderbolt cable?
I think you'll need to scratch the drive and re-install the OS. By leveraging the second Mac we can setup your system like a HD to it using Target Disk Mode.
The other option here is to setup a USB thumb drive as a bootable drive using the other Mac system and installing on it the OS installer. Here's the steps for that:
Do make sure you are connected to the internet as there are some updates your system will need.
everything indicates that the Hdd is dead, damaged, (go out and purchase a new drive). but wait you can see it in Disk Utilities run restore etc but it will not load the iOS 1. Unmount the Hdd then format the drive then remount the drive. re boot from disk util run restore install the latest iOs via your netwk. find a USB to access the system. as with last reply.
