Thank you for the help!
I did have it upgraded to 10.6 snow Leopold I beleave.
Osx installer. I have a mouse now to :)
No disc in the drive.
I downloaded mavericks from the mac app store and everything loaded up fine. Then it went to restart and it would not get past the white screen.
Should I click on the osx installer?
The installer is the only option on the screen
I get install osx.
To repair your disk using disk utility, restore your computer from a time machine backup, or preform other task using utilities, choose an option from the utilities menu.
I have two options, one: is an arow facing backwards and two: is continue.
What should I pick.
Why did this happen? Your best guess?
Sent a picture to the email I've been getting links to this page from.
It does not look like that. It's all text with only two clickable options
Ok, I continued and it had me choose my hard drive to install on.
Now it's installing. Eta 40min.
Will you still be around then?
Great... Thanks again for your help john!
