That may be the route you have to take...

The Genius Bar is the tech section of the Apple Store? (Sorry Im not really a Mac person) and Do they even have them in England?

If I was to get a hold of a copy of Tiger OS X and insert the Disc (without logging in) would that work? would it automatically boot the disc?

Since my Local Apple store is some 40 miles away :S
