Question about Apple iMac G3 Desktop
Get a question mark symbol
If your OS disk is a DVD, and you have a CD-ROM installed, it's unreadable by the internal drive. You'll need to get an external Firewire DVD drive. Connect it, make sure it has power, then hold down the option key when you turn on the iMac. You may have to wait a bit for the DVD to read out, but you should see the DVD icon show up on the display. Select it (you may need to use the arrow keys), then press return to boot from that drive.
A flashing question mark with no readable optical disk installed says either the operating system on the hard drive is corrupted or the hard drive is bad.
