Is this a gray machine specific Disc, or a retail 10.5.x disc?
What is the 2z691-****-A number on it?

It's a gray machine specific, a Mac OS version 10.5.4. The number is 2Z691-6248-A

Well, it may be a 20", but why all those questions? Is there a recurring problem with a specific model of iMacs?

The reason I'm asking is that gray Discs are machine specific, & on occasion Apple has included the wrong Discs... just trying to pinpoint where the problem is or isn't.

Oh I see, did you figure it out? I plan on upgrading it to Snow Leopard ASAP, maybe with a different disc I could just reboot it from the disk utility?

First you need to research all the problems people are having with the higher OSX versions, & make sure you have a bootable clone of what you have just in case.
then you must get 10.6 if they still have it, install it & update to 10.6.8 so you have the App Store to buy & download the huge 10.8 Installer.
Snow Leopard/10.6.x Requirements...
* Mac computer with an Intel processor
* 1GB of memory (I say 4GB at least, more if you can afford it)
* 5GB of available disk space (I say 30GB at least)
* DVD drive for installation
* Some features require a compatible Internet service provider; fees may apply.
* Some features require Apple’s MobileMe service; fees and terms apply.
Which apps work with Mac OS X 10.6?...
It's been pulled from the online store & Apple Stores, so you have to call Apple to buy it, last I heard.
