Boot/Install OSX from a CD
 
My OSX DVD gets an error half way through installation. Basically it didnt install the whole system so my laptop does not boot up. I get a gray screen with a folder in the center with a question mark. My PC only has a CD burner so I can only find files for DVDs. How can I boot from a CD burned on my PC? Thank you for your help. I accept PMs too.

I don't understand.
-You have a Macbook and a Macbook Pro with all sorts of problems from what I can tell from your other posts.
-You get an error during the installation.

I think they are trying to download an illegal copy of SL to burn to a CD from their PC and boot from it on the Mac. This won't work as a) CD's are way too small and b) it is illegal.

This is what I get from the post.

Spend $29 on the SL DVD from Apple or Best Buy. And stop doing shady things with your computers.

And even worse it sounds like they want to install SL on the PC!
