Currently Being ModeratedMar 5, 2011 6:09 PM (in response to JMF)I really don't think that's the issue. As I stated, I'm having the same issues using an external drive as well. I've had no issues booting from the external on another Apple laptop. The MBP's drive reads other DVD discs just fine.MBPRO, Mac OS X (10.5.3)
Currently Being ModeratedMar 5, 2011 6:32 PM (in response to macboy2000)I don't know how much help I'll be to you. Seems to have a lot of posts lately about not being able to start up from the install disks.
I assume you can still boot up from the internal drive.
When you hold the option key to start, does the screen come up with the option to choose a startup disk and is your Install Disk in when you attempt this?
While booted up normally, does the Install Disk open up with the install OSX menu? If so, does going through the install menu reboot the computer from the CD automatically?
Even if there were a firmware upgrade, seems like you would be able to use the 10.6 Install Disk to boot from.iMac Intel 21.5", Mac OS X (10.6.6), 8 Gig Ram
