    Trying to install OS X 10.1 (came with the computer but not installed) on my snow iMac. It currently has OS 9.2 When I hold down 'c' on bootup the little cd icon appears in the left corner, the cd-rom spins up then stops. It just sits there doing nothing. I know I can boot off a cd because I booted off the hardware test disc no problem. Any ideas?

    Assuming the 10.1 CD works the same as 10.2, you should be able to insert the CD while 9 is running, and run the Installer.

    If that doesn't work, try holding Option as you start up, then click the CD to force booting from it.

    Thanks

    I actually wound up using a DVD drive and installing 10.2.5 it worked fine. I think maybe my 10.1 disc is flaky

    Thanks again! :D
