    i just replaced a hard drive on an iMac g5 isight. When i boot it up i just get the flashing folder. I tried holding down the C button, then the command button, then the shift button but nothing seems to be working. The disk i am using is a Mac OS X install Disc which i got with my macbook. Could that be the problem? On top of this i cannot eject the disc. It was in the computer before i changed the hard drive adn now it will not come out. Anyways id really like to install OS X so any help would be appreciated.

    You either need the iMac G5 discs or a retail version of Mac OS X to be able to install it.

    Either hold down the mouse button or the eject button, the cd should just pop out.
