I have a old Intel PowerMac with os 10.11.
It wasn't compatible with my old Brother HL-1440 printer. I got around
this problem by creating a second HD with snow leopard on it. I am able
to print with this printer from snow leopard.
I installed some updates to this drive and now it has disappeared.
When this thing is in my computer it won't boot from it, the or os 10.11 or
from an Apple Install CD.
It is unusable. How do I get this thing zeroed out so I can get it to work
as an HD?
