    Sounds like you have an illegally downloaded copy of OS X. That cannot be discussed on this forum

    It may be that you are burning the disk on the PC, have you tried burning the disc from the mac, or is it simply that you cannot even get on to a user account.

    if you can get the iso image on the mac you may be able to burn it

    nah, i cant get past the password prompt on the mac, tried burning the iso in the usual way in nero, also tried it as a .dmg file too, but to no avail!
