    So I came back from the Apple Store the other day and I bought the AppleCare for the iMac. Question is that does it come with a disc? I mean I have seen numerous videos that usually it comes with a disc, a tool for certain things. Did they change that or was it something else?

    Thanks

    Isn't Apple Care just an extended warranty for your iMac from Apple and not a bit of software?

    My last several AC purchases did not come with a CD.

    ??? CD for what? Apple Care just extends your warranty another 2 years. You receive a letter in the mail from Apple with your details.

    In the past the Apple Care package included a 'tools' software disk.

    But as far as I know that was changed sometime ago.

    It was diagnostic tools that you could run before taking/sending the unit back to Apple.

    I just opened my brand new Apple Care package that I bought with my new iMac.

    Nothing in there but two booklets.

    On the package it says " AUTO ENROLL " so I checked online and sure enough the Apple Care registered to the iMac when I purchased it.

    Even that is a change, the last time I did it you had to do the enrollment online yourself.


    I'm good until February 14, 2015 ! :D

    In the past they included a disk that you could boot from to run Hardware Diagnostic Tools.

    If you called for support they would ask you to run some tests from what I recall.

    No More Disc

    I believe until 2010 Apple included Tech Tool Pro as a bootable disc in its AppleCare products for laptops and desktops.

    Now all you get is a box and two booklets, indeed, you don't even get a copy of lion with a new purchase of a iMac/Macbook/ MacMini as its preinstalled.

    Those were the days!!!!!!!

    I deleted my system folder on my 2001 Mac

    What do I do to get it back. I have backed up all my data. I do not have my original disks. I was trying to make more space on it. I have two mac notebooks from 2002 and 2003. They all work get. Love Apple worth every penny.

    If you don't have the original install discs then I suggest that you order new ones from Apple. In the mean time, you could visit the Apple store and speak with a genius who could possibly help you out with doing an archive and install.
