Hello,
I was wondering if you could help me.
I'm trying to bring back to life a Powerbook 145.
It boots fine from a floppy (System 7.5) however HD SC setup (7.3.5) can't detect a HD.
Disk First Aid can't do much either.
The HD spins and doesn't make any strange noise so it isn't totally "dead".

Is there anything else I could try? Some magic combination of keys ;-)
I've searched the net, read the docs over the Apple site. I even looked inside and checked the ribbon.

Thank you.

Is there any way you could get another hard disk drive to ensure that your controller, etc. are functioning properly?
