    help i have a big problem , my eMac boots really really slow , i installed onyx
    to improve it , but onyx told me my drive needs to be repaird and i should put in the install disc , ok i thought get out this nice apple booklet with the disc`s from the seller and aaaaaaaah i have twice install disc 1 with exactly the same numbers on but not the disc 2 , i asked the seller he cant find it ad asumes he sold it with the second emac he had so the buyer from that one has twice install disc 2 but is not registered with ebay any more and cant be traced :eek::mad:

    so here i am with twice exactly this disc
    disc 1 os version 10.4.4 aht version 2.5.2 disc version 1.0
    2z601-5729-a

    so the problem is to find this exact disc 2 as i was told i cant install from any other apart from this ...as they are model specific
    what did apple think ... the cheapest option is buying another eMac ? :mad::eek::confused:

    no, cheapest route is to find someone with an eMac like yours that still has their Tiger CD & to make you a backup copy of it. Or to search online to see if anyone is selling their copy.

    Better yet, just call Apple and have them send you a replacement disk. It should be around $15.
