    I am trying to create a bootable CD for Tiger. I copied the image of my OS X install disk 1. Now I want to get rid of everything from that image except what is needed to boot up on Tiger. What is needed and what can I get rid of from that image?

    Why do you want to create a bootable disk?

    Do you want to have something to boot from to fix a failed boot drive?

    If this is the case, may I suggest cloning your entire boot drive to a external drive?

    A simple hold option and you can boot from it, have all of your software, settings etc at your disposal to fix/reverse clone the original. Or boot off the clone until a replacement drive arrives.

    Because my iMac isn't booting. I purchased Disk Warrior and downloaded it, but I need it on a bootable CD to get it running on my iMac.

    Darn, I wrote a long post to help you, but I got logged out or something and now it's gone. Can't even go back in Safari history to get it.

    Call AppleCare or post your problem on the Apple Support forums.

    Well it was fun helping here for a whole two days.

    Sorry and good luck. :(
