I have a mac at work here that I can't get it to boot off the cd. I know the disc is fine because I used it to reload a different one. Things I've tried:<br />
-Holding the c key during boot<br />
-Holding the option key during boot(doesn't show the cd as a bootable device. Even unplugged the hard drive and it showed no boot device.)<br />
-System prefrences boot device select can select the cd but it won't boot off of it.<br />
-Cleared the cmos.<br />
-Lots of profanity<img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /><br />
Any suggestions?
