I have a Mac Mini A1347 that was wiped out before given to me. It has a 320 GB hard drive but it is not showing up when I attempt to install "El Capitan". I am trying to format the partition but it does not even show up. Here is a screenshot I took of the only thing that appears (the bootable usb flash drive with el capitan):
Any help in finding and formatting the 320gb drive in preparation for the "El Capitan" install would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Note: The screenshot was taken from a separate device.
I exited "Disk Utility" and was back at the "OX X Utilities" menu. There I opened up terminal and typed:
diskutil cs list
I get back the following message:
"No CoreStorage logical volume groups found"
I don't understand what has happened to the 320 GB hard drive. It is completely gone. Could it be a bad hard drive cable on the mini mac?
