If someone could give me some advice it'd be wonderful I got 2 x 1GHz G4 iMac (white dome one) that refuse to let me reinstall OS X (10.2) on them. I try double clicking the installer in OS X (which tells me to restart, which it does.. then loads OS X again instead of installing), I've tried holding C while starting it up (which gives me the blinking ? finder folder icon) and I've tried setting the OS X install disc as the startup volume. I've tried repairing permissions and the usual fixes. None of the above work and its quite urgent that I get OS X reinstalled. I work for a College, with not a lot of money so upgrading to Tiger is not an option. I also tried my Mac Minis install disc (with 10.3) which started installing, but wouldnt finish (because the hardware was not the same obviously), which was a positive sign. Any other tricks I can try? Man if this was a PC I could just Format and reinstall from CD... ironically a lot simpler than what I'm going through now!
