So, I'm no newbie to computers. I'm trying to wipe out my MBP and put a clean version of OSX Leopard on it... I'ved tried: 1. Just putting in CD and run from CD, then click restart, then hold OPTION down onboot and it brings up my mac HD then shows the CD as well, so I click CD... walk away for 30 mins... nothing has happened, its frozen on that screen. 2. Putting in the CD, then shutting mac down, then press POWER button and then press 'C' to load from CD drive, it just brings up a white screen, the screen that shows just before the little gray apple logo is shown. 3. I also made my 16gb flashdrive into a loadable option and put OSX on it from using Disk Utility to do that, I got the same problem I did when I tried #1, as well as pressing APPLE KEY+OPT+SHIFT+DEL on load... that gave me the same error that I got with the #2. Anyone?!? Is there someway to start the install while running the current version of mac and not having to restart? I dont get why this isn't working. It is recognizing both CD drives / flash drives... but as soon as one option is selected, its like it just seems to freeze up.
