    Some oddities
    Hey,

    I just got my Ibook a week plus ago. Tried booting up from the Techtool Deluxe CD (came with AppleCare) to see how tt works...

    I restarted my Mac while holding down the 'C' key till the Apple logo showed up but then I got a msg saying I had to restart my com again. How odd... so I can't seem to boot from CD...

    Plus somehow when I try to open up help it seems to just close again automatically... how weird...

    someone pls enlighten me... =p

    Cool
    Is the Techtool Deluxe CD bootable?

    btw the 'help' that I was referring to was the default Mac Help...
    seems to close everytime I open it...

    Remind me not to get applecare. Since it seems to disable the Help Tab and causes repair / restore CD to not boot :-p

    Can you boot from the restore Discs? If so, then I'd venture to say the TechTool CD isn't bootable. Maybe it was suppose to be, but it ain't a workin'

    Specs:
    G4 1Ghz OS X 10.4.7
    I find the best way to see Mac help is to select it from the top menu line after opening Finder

    ah... =)
    Hey,

    I just decided to give Apple Tech Support a ring, apparently I can't boot from the TechTools CD but I can run it from my OS so no big deal...

    The help preferences apparently got corrupted so all I had to do was delete the com.help.* files under user folder/library/preferences and after tt no more prob.

    Cool...

    That is so strange. I have never had any problems booting that disc from my iBook G4. Glad you got it figured out though.
