Sorry for my spelling first off.

I recently got this MacBook (4,1) White & I guess while I was clearing things out I deleted something from the OS x. I am guessing. I've done everything I could find.

. fsck_hfs -r dev/disk0s2
. fsck -yf
. booting in safe mode
. booting with command + v
. of course command + s

there's a few more but I don't remember. BUT every time I restart it just goes to he flashing blue screen with courser & wheel thing.

Another problem I don't have the OS x disks But I've been trying to find one on eBay.

PLEASE SOMEONE HELP IF THERE'S ANY WAY TO RESET TO OSX BACK OR SOMETHING.

THANK YOU.

You need an install DVD in order to get things running again. Your MacBook originally came with Leopard installed. Leopard retail DVDs are hard to find and expensive when you do find one. I suggest instead buying a Snow Leopard retail DVD direct from Apple. That will only cost $29.99.

Thanks.

I've actually figured that out. Just wanted to find out if there was anything else I could do before I pay $31.32 lol.
