Hello

 

I am trying to reformat the internal hard drive on my iMac which I no longer use. I am trying to boot from the install disc however it stalls on the apple logo with the spinning circle.

 

I am having issues with the SuperDrive writing DVD's but I have checked and it does read DVD's so this probably is not the issue.

 

It makes a strange noise like it is trying to read the boot disc however can’t.

 

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what the problem might be? Is there an alternative way to reformat?

 

Thanks in advance for your help!
