    Can't get DVD tray to open
    Have an old iBook running v10.3. I used Linux Gparted to wipe the HDD for a fresh reinstall, but now I can't get the DVD tray to open with the F12 button. I guess because there's no longer an OS installed. Anyone know how to fix this? Thanks.

    And don't be in a hurry for a result - it can take a while before it spits it out. If it does not work the first time hold power button for 7 secs and then do the process again.
