My cd/dvd drive busted WHILE I was upgrading the OS to 10.5.  Now I get the folder with the question mark when I start up, or a blank screen.  Other than installing a new cd/dvd drive, how can I install the OS without the drive?  I only have other Intel Macs to use, no PPC.  I don't believe Firewire/Target disk will help much in this case will it?  I don't need any data from the currently unreadable hard drive - luckily had transferred everything ahead of time, but also erased a backup OS 10.4 boot drive too soon.

 

Thanks,

Curtis
