Recently I decided to optimize my mac 10.4.9 and i used my install disc 1 and used the erase and format option for the installation type. Without being aware, they asked me to insert a second install disc which i have lost. WHAT DO I DO??


MacBook, Mac OS X (10.4.9)

Start over & try this where many Disc #2s were defective...

 

That second Disc thing happens frequently, the best way around it is to do a Custom install, and eliminate enough Printer Drivers, Languages, Fonts, and Applications you don't need... then it may skip #2 altogether.

You have to power down, then hold the Mouse button down while booting up to eject that Disc, also hold the Option/alt key at the same time to bring up the Boot Manager & give you a chance to insert Disc #1 again & wait for it to show as a boot choice.
