    Cool
    Just a guess here. Have you tried the option key and the number two key or a option - shift and the number two key?

    Welcome to Mac-Forums.

    All posts are welcome. However, after almost 12 years, I guess most folks have found the solution

    Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    I think it has to do with all those Zombie movies and TV shows that have been playing lately. They even started having Zombie ads on TV about doing your taxes!

    Hi everyone,
    Believe it or not, I was looking for the same answer and no, had not found the way since the intro of the euro.... as I was using a French keyboard for a while, in parallel with a British one, both had euro keys and I just had concluded there wasn't an easy way on a US keyboard w/o programming it myself. And of course, I didn't look that hard...

    So thanks to the Zombies!
