    Welcome to Apple Support Communities

     

    Your Mac can't find any bootable disk.

     

    1. Insert the Mac OS X DVD and press C key while your computer is starting.

     

    2. Go to Utilities > Disk Utility, select Macintosh HD in the sidebar and repair the disk.

     

    If it doesn't help, the hard disk is broken. Take the Mac to an Apple Store
