iMac won't install from CD
Posted on 2013-06-22
I have an iMac that has some serious problems with the file system. So I want to reinstall the OS. However, every time I put in the OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard CD (the one with the picture of the snow leopard on the box) it spits it out.
I slide the disk in and turn on the iMac holding down the C key. It won't take it right away and the white light comes on. I keep gently pushing in the CD but it doesn't take it right away. After a couple taps it does take it, the white light goes away, and it sounds like it wants to start up from the CD....but doesn't. It just spits it out. The same is happening with my Disk Warrior CD.
Any ideas would be helpful. Thanks
