    iMac Restore CD problems, please help.
    hello everyone, I own Macbook Pro which is my primary computer but also have a iMac G3 slot loading. I have experienced the very common Flashing Questionmark issue. And as directed I have inserted my Restore disk into the drive and started it up on that disk.

    Everything works fine until I try to use the Restore Function. No matter what option I choose the "Restore" Button is not able to be selected. And when I try to switch the disk It does nothing. I have no clue what to do.

    Please help me get my old baby up and running, lol.

    Thankyouu!

    Specs:
    iMac 17" 1Ghz G4  iPhone 3G  10.5.5
    During restart, have you held the option key? It will bring up the Startup Manager and System folders to select.
    Which OS are you using or trying to use?
    When all else fails, try everything!
    The Rep System and you.
    Life's a joke...If you're not laughing, then you didn't get it.

    Are you speaking of the ? with the folder icon flashing?
    What iMac G3 do you have? (MHz, firewire, Ram, etc...)?
    Are you looking to upgrade the OS as well?
