yes. I do. I tried putting disc 1 of 2 in but then i couldnt get it out so...i pulled the cover off and pulled it out myself. It has a scratch on it now. But I'd like to give it a try. Disc 2 is still like new.
Hey Mike, I got the disc to show up on the screen with the arrows. The disc schows up but with a small circle with an X like the Harddrive priture. I clicked on the disc and i can hear the dics spin but then after a bit it goes back to the black screen with errors again. i supose the disc is not being read and damaged. Will I need to purchase another installer disc or should i try disc 2?
By the way I appreciate the help. Cant thank you enough.
oh i forgot once i get the new disc which will be later today, how do i get the old disc out? Would they have the disc i need at teh apple store?
i got an old Mac mini. its the 1.25ghz with 256 ram. I think I'm going to pick up the new Core duo 2 today. I can use the installer disc from that right?
Thanks so much for you help Mike.
I ordered the original from tech support. $17. Wont be here for a week. Thanks for your assistance. Once i get the disc I hope it works.
Well i take it back this thing is still giving me a hard time. The disc runs but at the end it says it has errors installing. What i did notice is when i get to the select destination to install OS X. It says cannot instal mac osx on this volume without chaning your install settings. Click options to change settings. A newer version of Mac OS X is installed.
I click on options and i have to choose to archive and install which moves system files to folder named Previous system.then install new copy of osx. You can not start computer using previous folder.
Erase and install.
Under the archive there is the option to "Preserve Users and Network settings.
what i really want is all the pics in my iphoto of my son. everything else i dont really need. If i Erase and install will it delete my little boys pics?
