    Hi Rebin,

    You're going to need a an OSX disk if you're going to reinstall. By re-install I take it you mean format the disk and start again.

    You can still buy OS X Tiger on Amazon but as you're going to have to buy a Disk you may as well get OSX Leopard I would have thought.

    OSx reinstall disks are model specific. A snow leopard iMac disk will not install on a mini. A tiger OSX disk for a MacBook will not install on a mini.

    Rebooting is just turning it off an on again. I would have assumed that you've tried this already.

    You could illegitimately acquire OS X, while that would be violating the DMCA, I personally don't see anything ethically wrong with that (since you already have a 'license' for Tiger). Just don't ask for help with that here.
