    Add to my last post and you should get a kick out of this........

     

    A few minutes ago, I thought I'd give it one more try with AHT. After inserting disk #2, I decided to look at the AHT read me and a light bulb went on........ the process is:

     

    insert disc

    restart with D key

    run AHT

     

    Instead, the tech had me do the following (and, at that point, I was merely following instructions and really not giving any thought about anything being the right or wrong way):

     

    Restart with Command + D key - didn't work (machine does not support it)

    Restart with Option + D key (for good measure) - didn't work

    Restart with D key - didn't work

    insert disc #2 and restart with C key - didn't work (I don't think you can boot from disc #2 - doesn't it require to have booted/installed from disc #1?)

    At no point did she have me insert the CD and restart with D key - it was either D key without a disc or C key with disc. Of course none of that worked, LOL

    This was second tier.......

     

    So, extended AHT just started running, will run it three times.

    run AHT

     

    As I noted elsewhere, Apple techs don't have all the answers nor is everything in their cheat sheet booklets.
