This is what happened. I had kernel panic, and tried to solve it to the best of my knowledge. In the end I could not solve this issue and decided to re-install my system. ( I could not make a clone copy of the system cuz my wifes external is formated in NTFS so I backup folders I needed). I pulled my OSX Snow Leopard disc out of the box that came with my mac (second time using it). Put it in, surprizingly it took much longer to boot from it and the drive was making really weird noises. Next I wiped my drive when I pressed install it shows me 32 minutes remaining and after that says INSTALL FAILED (yellow ! sign) please restart and try again. I tried like 10 times with no luck. I took the DVD out and its all scratched like hell. Now I'am stuck with no system on my mac. What should I do? I cannot go to apple store, Im staying in a small city at my wifes village at the moment, which is 10 hours drive from Bangkok or about 3 from nearest Apple Store. I downloaded retail OSX 10.6.3 from BT but the file is ISO, how can I burn it? NEro screwed up 2 DL DVDs already! UltraISO only shows 900 mb size even the ISO is 7.23. Please help me find a way out.
