    Specs:
    IMac 10.6.7/ 3.06GHZ IPhone 4S, IPad4 retina
    IMac boot disc
    I have a new IMac running mavericks. It didn't come with a system disc (preloaded). How can I make a boot disc for emergency use?

    Since your new iMac does not have an optical drive for which you could use a disk to boot it, we'll assume you mean being able to boot from a USB flash drive.

    Follow the instruction given in the previous post from moderator "Slydude".
