Hi Everyone,

I have an iBook G4. I think the software got corrupted as it won't boot. I just got in the recovery disks from Apple. (I also tried Leopard Retail).

I put the disk in, held C - it appears to be reading from the discs but then it goes to a solid blue screen and then nothing happens. I try holding option down, and the disk screen comes up and it shows "Mac OS X Install Disk" - I select it and same thing. This same thing happens with leopard disk.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

QUOTE Thanks
