Titel:

Dropped iMac. HD unmounted. Now what?

Tekst:

My iMac fell on a hardwood floor.  Power was on at the time and remained on after falling.  I quit all applications and restarted it.  A white screen with a flashing question mark on a file folder appeared.  I read that I should

*restart with the installation disk while holding down the C key

*quit installation

*open Disk Utility and

*Repair Disk.

I followed those instructions and got this message in red letters. '''The disk could not be unmounted.'''

I looked around for answers but am not sure how to proceed.  Maybe the fall loosened some connections and I should open up the computer.  Someone else asked about a dropped iBook and was advised to replace the reed switch inverter cable.  Is that what I should do.  Or just try to reinstall OSX.  Please let me know what my next steps are.  Many thanks.
