I would have something to say if I knew whether it was just a driver, and if so what version, what brand and model of "dongle", and whether you had made 100% sure the CD or DVD in question was Mac compatible or not, etc.


But, hey, I'm fine with walking away from this thread.  I'm not experiencing the problem myself.  Sorry for not being a clairvoyant or mind reader.

If a Safe Boot doesn't work...


"Try Disk Utility


1. Insert the Mac OS X Install disc, then restart the computer while holding the C key.

2. When your computer finishes starting up from the disc, choose Disk Utility from the Installer menu at the top of the screen. (In Mac OS X 10.4 or later, you must select your language first.)

Important: Do not click Continue in the first screen of the Installer. If you do, you must restart from the disc again to access Disk Utility.

3. Click the First Aid tab.

4. Select your Mac OS X volume.

5. Click Repair. Disk Utility checks and repairs the disk."

Hold the Mouse button down while booting up, that should eject it, if you hold the option/alt key at the same time you should be able to insert the Install Disc & wait a bit to have it as a boot choice.
