I cannot understand why I am unable to reinstall my Mac OS X installation disk 1 after performing a 7 pass erase. I kept the installation disk in the computer because iMac would not allow me to eject it. Plus I needed the installation disk in my computer to perform the erase in Disk Utility.


Can anyone shed light on this and did I erase the entire installation disk?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
