    That has come up before and the problem turned out to be that the Install CD/DVD being used was not new enough for the Mac in question.

    In general you need to use either the Install disks that came with your particular Mac or a retail version of the OS X disks that dates from after the time of release of your Mac model.

    Okay, I moved on to trying with my Leopard disks. They must be new enough, but when I reboot my iMac wont start up and the fans blow full-blast.

    Any ideas?
