    Your post has been moved here. It did not belong in the lounge and specifically in the welcome thread. Also edited your title.

    Specs:
    Imac 27" Retina 3.3GHz, 512GB Flash, 16GB memory, OS X.11.4.
    Operating system? Maybe downloading the OS X.7.3, X.6.8 or X.5.8 Combo Updater may do the trick. Would have supplied link if details provided.
    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!

    What's the name of your hard drive?
