    Specs:
    Imac 27" Retina 5K, 512GB Flash Storage, 3.3Ghz, 16GB memory, OS X.11.5.
    1. Get the OS X.6 DVD from Apple Online for $20.00..

    2. Pop it in and boot, holding down 'C'. If it boots, leave Installer, go to Utilities and run Repair Disk and see what is reported regarding the state of the hard drive. It may be the drive is shot and to recover those files you may well need Data Rescue 3 or similar which costs more, $99.00.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Enter "Snow Leopard" in the Apple website's search field & it comes right up!

    Selecting the language you want installed as the default language is part of the install process. You MUST select a language.

    Give this a quick glance. What you are seeing probably seeing looks a bit lie screenshot 1. You don't want to click on the area that has a name which looks like a serial number. Click on whatever your hard drive is named. In screenshot 3 you can see that I have clicked on the drive "Aquaman" and also clicked the First Aid tab.

    Nice one brother Sly! I guess I should visit ATPM once in awhile and brush up on the basics that I seem to forget.... Now what was I doing?

    Thanks. Enjoyed writing for them though it was sometimes difficult to think up ideas that were doable. Hated to see that go away but the editorial team figured it was time.

    Much like coming here I didn't realize how much Mac info I didn't know till I started hanging out with those guys.
