First crash since I got the mac mini (intel) in Nov 06.

Installing software~on restart it wouldn't do anything but show grey screen~apple logo with spinning circle, the apple replaced with circle with line through it.

I tried putting in the leopard disc to do a reinstall but nothing, and now the disc is stuck inside.

Help please?

Jim

By checking other threads I did manage to get the disc out. I have time machine so all is saved on there~guess the question is how to do a reinstall??

Can you reboot from the Leopard disc, assuming it is the full retail version?

Yes~OK I got everything back up~a fellow from another forum told me how to boot from disc (holding down "C") and I didn't select the wipe/reinstall, but honestly don't remember which option I selected. 45 minutes later everything is back to normal~didn't even have to access time machine...just gotta uninstall that suspect software.
