Re: How to Reinstall OS using restore disc on Mac
The Restore discs included with some computers that ship with Mac OS X 10.2, This includes the Power Mac G4, the restore process of each model varies slightly.
Follow the following steps:
- The restore is customizable. You can choose to restore all items, or select just Mac OS 9.2.2 or specific applications such as iDVD.
- The Restore discs are not startup discs. Using the Restore program requires that you start up the computer from a hard disk that has Mac OS X 10.2 or later installed on it.
- Because the Restore discs are not startup discs, an erase and restore requires an additional step.
- Some computers share the same restore process but ship with a combined Software Install and Restore disc contained on a single DVD-ROM or multiple DVDs instead of two or more CD-ROM discs. The Install and Restore disc is a startup discs. (In the case of multiple restore DVDs, the first disc is the startup disc.)
