Last time on Dead iMac, I was able to run Disk Utility off the restore partition and see (though fail to repair) the boot partition. I'd like to attempt to format that partition, so that when I sell this thing my data isn't on it. It's being less than cooperative today. Thus far: - If I attempt to boot up normally, I get a white screen with no content - If I attempt to boot up holding Option to get a boot manager (so I can pick the ML recovery partition), generally I get a white screen with a cursor but no options to select - If I attempt to boot up holding D for hardware diagnostics, I get the flashing folder - If I put the Snow Leopard DVD in and boot up holding C, I get a white screen with no content. - If I put the Snow Leopard DVD in and boot up holding Option, I also get a white screen with no content. The Superdrive does spin so I know it's acknowledging the presence of the disc. Anyone have an input on how I might get past the white screen of no content and actually get it to boot off the DVD?
