Hello All,

I have acquired an ibook from my friends Mom but it had a bad Virus in it so thinking I knew what I was doing I reformatted the drive and installed the OSX disk that came with the laptop "there are  two install disks 1 and 2 but only the first disk was installed it didn't ask for the second disk. When it rebooted I got a flashing folder with a "?" and a Smiley face. First off this is my first Mac I have owned so I'm lacking the acquired knowledge to pursue fixing this ibook.


So what should I do? I have searched on the Internet for some answers but with no out come. So I found the apple support communities and I'm praying that I can find good advice here to resolve this issue I am having. I also other disks that came with the laptop, 3 software restore disks and an Apple hardware test disk along with the 2 OSX install disks.


Any help given would be very appreciated if someone can guide me into the right direction with getting my ibook back to working condition. I can provide additional information if need.


Thank you for your time to read this.

Kind regards


iBook, Mac OS X (10.2.x)
