    ok.. i just burned a dmg file(diskwarrior)... and i need it to boot up.. but it won't.... all I do is hold the "c" key when booting up right?

    i burned the image with disk utility.

    You need to make sure this LEGAL version of Diskwarrior you have is able to boot your particular Mac. Newer Macs require newer versions.

    Depends where you got the DMG from. If you got it on like Limewire or P2P/torrent, it might not be bootable...aka it might not be an exact copy of the CD and it might just be the app.

    Yeah...You might want to try to burn the dmg file using Disk Utitly by creating a disc image...Anyway, why do you wanna boot from a cd to play the game? You need to boot from the cd to play the game?
