I was transferring data from Time Machine backup  to a 20"core duo iMac using Snow Leopard DVD when I aborted the process, I then got tthe above message. Tried to reset the PRAM, start in Safe mode, start in Target mode and various other methods without success. Still won't start.  Snow Leopard is still inside the machine and refuses to come out. Need help.


iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.8)

    Thanks baltwo, but they all assume that you have access to the machine. I do not.

    Am I missing something? To remove the disc, restart holding down the mouse button or running this in the Terminal app:

     

    drutil eject -drive internal

    Yes, can't get at anything. Same after each Restart " you need to Restart etc:" I am locked out.

    Ah! The proverbial missing information. Zap the PRAM and Reset the SMC, then try again.

    Thanks, but already tried these a couple of times without success.

    Only saw the PRAM zap, but was too lazy to edit the reply. Then, it's time to contact Apple Service, iMac Service or Apple's Express Lane. Do note that if you have AppleCare's protection plan and you're within 50 miles (80 KM) of an Apple repair station, you're eligible for onsite repair since yours is a desktop machine.

    Is it not possible to tell from the Panic message where the problem lies. I'm wondering if the DVD is stuck and this is the problem. I live in rural Ireland. Ireland is an expensive country + the iMac is 6 years old. If I thought it was the DVD I could find something on iFixit..

    Using a wired mouse hold the mouse button down during startup and it should do an eject of the DVD.

    Sorry about the logistics and economics, but without the entire crash report, deciphering what you've posted isn't possible. As for a stuck disc, restart, holding down the mouse button. If that doesn't eject it, then run this command in the Terminal app:

     

    drutil eject -drive internal

    Thanks, but tried the mouse - no luck.

    Can't get to Terminal.

    Strange under normal startup it takes about 30 seconds before the Kernel screen appears but if I connect a USB drive and press Option by startup it can take up to 2 minutes and it looks like the computer is trying to access the DVD in the USB drive. But Apple in their wisdom say you cannot start from a lower OS than what is already on the machine. I have Snow Leopard OS on the machine, and the DVD stuck in the machine and only OS Leopard to try and start from. So maybe this is also a problem. Hope you can follow all that.

    Not so. Apple says not to install an OS that's earlier than that which shipped with the machine. So, now the DVD's in an ext disc reader? If so, the mouse trick won't work. All I can suggest is try another computer or HD to boot the machine. Then, this Terminal one should work after you hook up the USB burner:

     

    drutil eject -drive external

    Yes, so it's not the OS.

    Have a slightly newer iMac(core2duo) and connected with Firewire and started in Target mode. Got the same Panic message  + "IOFirewireController unresponsive IRM at node 1, forcing root to node 0". Mean anything?

    Connect the borked iMac in TDM to the good iMac. As best I can tell from the limited info, the FW port might be hosed.
