I got ahold of an older MacBook: 60GB hdd, 512MB RAM. It won't boot and will simply get stuck on the blinking question mark. I'd like to get OS X back on it and up and running to some degree of functionality. Here's what I've tried so far: Apparently the hard drive is shot because it's giving the click of death and my desktop could not read it either. I popped in the Tiger install disc in the slot-loading drive and the MacBook didn't recognize it. It eventually spit the disc out automatically. I tried using an external CD/DVD drive to boot the Tiger disc and also a rEFIt disc and the MacBook refused to boot off of those too. RAM seems to be fine. Haven't tested Firewire because I don't have a Firewire host. Are there limitations to these older MacBooks that I should know about? I remember something about MFT support only being added midway through the MacBook timeline. Any help is appreciated, thanks.
