    I have a 2.1 Ghz iMac G5. For some reason, everytime I try to boot from a CD, it always fails. Whats up?:confused:

    What happens? Does it just boot from the HDD like usual?

    Just to make sure, how are you trying to boot from the disk? Are you holding "C" while booting-up?

    Yea, I hold down C and a grey "?" comes up. I don't think its because I am using a wireless keyboard. Its wierd.

    You might be using the wrong/a currupted bootable CD. Make sure your using the one that came with your system, and that it doesn't have any scraches or chips.
