My macbook used to jam on the blue screen and nothing would appear. I tried the installation discs and now when i start up my mac it jams on the Install Mac OS X screen and 'the please insert "Mac OS X Install Disc 2" screen appears. I have repeated the installation a number of times and the same situation seems to occur.

Any help would greatly be appreciated.

Cheers

are you using the installation discs designed for your macbook? i dont recall there ever being a Disc 2 on a macbook as they should be DVD. you cant use discs from another mac product to install unless it is a retail disc.

Really? The installation discs I have for my MacBook clearly read "Disc 1" & "Disc 2."

mad_hatter, it would be helpful if you posted some more details, what model is your MB and what exactly are you trying to do? A fresh install of the OS?


MB | Mid-2007 | 13-inch | 2.16GHz Core 2 Duo | 2GB DDR2 | 120GB HDD | GMA 950 | White
MBP | Late-2008 | 15-inch | 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo | 4GB DDR3 | 250GB HDD | 9400M + 9600M GT w/ 256MB GDDR3 | Unibody

Sorry, as your can probably tell im not the best with computers. My macbook is the black one, i dont currently have it with me, so thats pretty much all the info i can give on that.

At first i was just trying to get back onto my mac, with all my files still there. Now, from what it looks like, it seems i may have to restart the whole thing which due to the frustration the thing has led me, im prepared to do lol!

So any help on restarting the entire thing, or if it is still possible, just fix it, I will be more than happy with

Thanks again
