Hi guys,

I need some help.


I bought a IMac. 3.16ghz, 8GB, 1TB. My problem is it is running on Windows 7. I just want a factory reset to the original settings running OSX.


My problem is when I start the computer and hold down C I have only one option, "run windows." There is no option for OSX.


I have my snow leopard installation Disc. Can some one please let me know how to get rid of windows and restore the machine to as if it were new.


Thanks for your time,
