Insert the install disk when the computer is operational. After the disk has mounted, click on the 'Install' icon in the install disk window. You will be prompted that the machine will now re-start. When the re-start happens DO NOT hold down the 'C' key the computer will automaticaly start up from the install disk.
If this fails to work, hold down the 'alt' key on start up. This will bring up a screen with all the available boot folders. (You may need to wait for the disk to appear on the screen). Select the boot disk you want and click the arrow to start from that disk.

Brand new apple dvd drive will not accept dvd


The DVD works by just pushing it in far enough till you get resistance, then the drive pulls the DVD in by itself. If after it pulls the DVD in, it just ejects it, The DVD drive thinks you are using an incompatible disk.

You can also try resetting the SMC.
This is how to reset SMC on most modern Mac laptops:

Shutdown your MacBook Air / MacBook Pro
Connect the power adapter to your Mac
On the MacBook/Pro's keyboard, hold down the Shift+Control+Option keys and the Power button at the same time
Release all keys and the power button at the same time
Boot your Mac as usual

Here's the key sequence to hold down:

Reset the SMC of a MacBook Air or Retina MacBook Pro

Do keep in mind that by resetting the SMC you will lose power specific settings, like the time it takes to sleep a Mac and other customizations to power settings. No big deal, but if you have made many changes to your hardware behavior you will want to adjust stuff like sleep behavior again.
Reset SMC of an iMac, Mac Pro, Mac Mini

Resetting SMC is different for non-portable Macs:

Shut down your Mac
Disconnect the power cord
Press and hold the Mac's power button for 5 seconds
Release the button
Reattach the power cables and boot the Mac as usual

Reset the SMC of a MacBook or MacBook Pro's with detachable batteries

sad mac reset the smc Older MacBook laptops with a removable battery can reset SMC with the following approach:

Shutdown the MacBook/Pro and remove the battery
Disconnect the power adapter, hold the Power Key for 10 seconds
Release the power key and reconnect your battery and power adapter
Turn your Mac on
Let boot as usual

Hopefully that will clear up your problems, if not it might be worth a visit to the Apple Store or a certified repair center.

Happy New Year,
Kerry

How do you turn off DOS mode on a 13" MacBook Pro?


Is this a trick question? There is no "DOS mode" on a MacBook Pro.
Do you have WIndows installed as part of Boot Camp, and your machine is booting into Windows? To boot back into the Mac, either use the Boot Camp control panel in Windows, or hold down the Option key after you hear the startup chime and select the OS X partition to boot from.

Restart your mac. As it's restarting/booting up, hold down the command, option, R and P keys simultaneously. As it's booting up and you're holding these keys, you should hear the startup chime, continue to hold the keys down, it will cycle and you'll hear the startup chimes again. Let it go thru this cycle 7 (seven) times before you let up on those keys. Once it's cycled 7 times, let it boot up normally.
If that doesn't work, then reinstall the original system software that came with the Macbook. You may have to reformat the hard disk and do a clean install.

You have probably formatted the hard drive when trying to install XP, XP is not compatible with Mac hardware. You will need to purchase a copy of the Mac OS or try and locate the restore disks that should have come with your computer.
