    So, I purchased iDefrag and downloaded it along with "CDMaker" which allows you to create a start-up CD, so you can Defrag your Main start-up disk. I did just that and iDefrag did it's job BUT now I can't change the start up disk? It has NO options for me to accomplish this and I've tried holding down the space bar and a bunch of other key commands while starting up but the damn disk won't come out. Is there a way to force that disk out? OR a something I can try? I'm at a lose right now. Any help is GREATLY appreciated.

    Options

    You may have already tried this, but holding down the "Option" key during startup should give you a list of all bootable volumes, at which point you'd be able to choose your internal hard drive to boot from.

    HTH.

    I thought defragmentation was completely unnecessary on a Mac? :confused:
