Mounting and fixing a supposedly unmountable and unfixable hard drive  -
As described in this MacFixIt Forums thread
(http://www.macfixit.com/ultimate/Forum3/HTML/007164.html), a user
was unable to startup his Mac whenever a certain drive was attached,
regardless of whether or not it was the startup drive. An Apple
Authorized Service Provider told him it was hopeless and the drive
needed to be replaced. It turned out (as also suggested in this MacFixIt
Forums thread -
http://www.macfixit.com/ultimate/Forum1/HTML/003466.html) that the
drive was saved (although not the data on it) by starting up the Mac
from the Linux OS.
