    Your Mac can't find any bootable disk.


    1. Insert the Mac OS X DVD and press C key while your computer is starting.


    2. Go to Utilities > Disk Utility, select Macintosh HD in the sidebar and repair the disk.


    If it doesn't help, the hard disk is broken. Take the Mac to an Apple Store
