- Boot from the OS install disk
- go to the menu bar & open Disk Utility
- reformat the hard drive
- reinstall the OS

This should get you going again.

Insert the install disc, and restart. As soon as you hear the startup chime, hold down C until the spinning gear shows up.

After i reformated the disk and tried to install osx this is the message i got?


Install failed , Mac osx could not be installed on your computer the installer could not validate the contents of the "base system" package contact the software manufacturer for assistance.

side note:i installed ram on the computer a couple of days before installing the partition. does this have anything to do with the installation? helppp

What OS version are you trying to install...and what color is the disk (gray or black)?
