LINUX MINT HDD TRANSFER... PC to MAC

Postby deeteevee on Sun May 13, 2012 3:53 am

Hello everyone,

So I had a wonderful Acer Aspire One D250 running Linux Mint. I recently broke the screen entirely and didn't feel like paying for repairs so I took the harddrive out. I have a Macbook that has a busted HDD so I decided I would put the Acer's Mint HDD into the Mac. It worked a few times when I would press the brightness button while it booted. Everything worked fine without any tweaking from when it was in the Acer.

The Mac decided to not recognize the HDD now so I am here to ask how I can completely format the HDD from Linux Mint. I want to install MAC OSX onto the HDD then properly dualboot it with Linux. If anyone has any idea how I can do this please, please, PLEASE let me know.

Thanks,

DTV

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

A thorough way to do this is to use DBAN, which will wipe the entire hard disk: http://www.dban.org/ Just burn it to a CD, boot from it and do a one-pass wipe.
