Hi, I have a slot loading iMac G3 which won't boot up and displays a flashing finder and question mark even though I have OS X installed, It started after I set it to boot up from classic Mac OS 9 and the next time I restarted it, the problem occured. Thanks for your help everyone!

    The Mac usually flashes finder with a question mark as an indication that it is unable to find a valid boot file.

     

    Try to boot from install CD

     

    If that works start Disk Utility to repair the disk.

     

    If it doesn't work you have more serious problems.
