    I tried installing Leopard on my Intel 2006 Imac.
    After restart the disk wont boot, i cannot eject it and i cannot boot at all.
    The only thing that works is Command + S that brings me to a black screen with an option to type commands but i have no idea what to do ? Very frustrating, please help !

    Thank you

    Holding Option won't give you the disk to boot from?

    Will the cd eject if you hold the mouse button while rebooting?

    Did you set your hard drive as the boot disk? Just boot up from the CD and double check your startup disk.

    Hold down Option to bring up the bootloader or just use Startup Disk on the DVD.

    Did you verify the drive is initialized with a GUID partition map?
