    Hey all
    After a lot of trouble caused by running OnyX I've decided the best thing to do is to format my iMac and start from scratch again
    Just a few questions first though:

    1) I'm assuming I just insert the Os disk and restart the iMac whilst holding 'C' to enter the setup menu, yes?

    2) Will my wireless mouse and keyboard work during the setup process, or will I need to dig out a USB set to sort it? I know I have a USB keyboard somewhere, but I'm not sure about mouse...

    1. Yes

    2. Breakout your USB wired keyboard and mouse. :)

    Regards.

    Apple bluetooth wireless mouse & keyboard will work during setup - first screen you'll get it one telling you to 'battery up' your mouse - just turn it on and off and it'll be found - from there your fine...

    Yup, assuming you have Leopard, not sure whether that works in Tiger.
