Unfortunately not yet. In the above posts(s), the reboot took me back to the screen with the ?mark/face. Shut down did just that, shut it down. As I figured, I never dis hear back from Apple of a replacement harddrive. "EDIT" yes, I was truthfully hoping to get it up & running just so I could use it to surf the web & such but I think unless I can get him to buy a harddrive & OS, I might be sol. One last thing I'm going to try later is remove the harddrive & put it back in just in case it might of come loose somehow.
