It depends on which OS you are running. OS 10.6 or lower requires a system disk. OS 10.7 and above has a recovery partition on the hard drive which allows you to format the hard drive and re-install a fresh copy of the OS. (To access the recovery partition, hold down CMD + R during start-up)

You can restore your computer to the factory state, without any of your data, but this will require (at a minimum) the install disk(s) that came with your system, (prior to OSX 10.7) Systems built for 10.7 and later may not have shipped with disks, but Apple will happily provide you those disks at little to no cost.

My iMac g4 1ghz wont boot


First hold down the right hand shift key down when you start, this does some housekeeping, The next step is if you have an install disk or tiger disk then start up from it by holding the "C" key down when starting and inserting the dvd, if this loads then go through the install menu, dont worry you do not need to actualy install just select language and then you get to a screen where you can select utilities from the menu bar, then select disk utility and repair permissions, after that do a repair disk then quit disk utility and change the startup disk back to the hard drive and restart, if for some reason you cannot repair the disk, this refers to the catalogs it uses to keep track , not the data itaelf, in that case you need a 3rd party utility like Disk warrior.

Can,t get imac G5 W Tiger to Boot all the way to desktop.Turns on,I get,Taa Daa sound,then just folder w flashing question mark.?How do I access Bios?


Hi, You need a Tiger or Leopard installation disk. Then You start up the system holding down "C" instead of installing you start the "disk utillity" and repair it.
You can access singel user mode by starting up the system holding down command + S.

I inherited an imac g3.....


That Mac will run 10.4 Tiger, but I would recommend 10.3 Panther. You can download all updates through sofware update after the install is complete. You should be able to find installer disks on eBay for cheap.

Using a MacBook as an external HD


Try reading here: Apple
Even though the article refers to Leopard, it should work for Tiger.

Here is the catch: The iMac needs a FireWire port

IMac very unstable on 10.4.11


The disk utility program is the key. You need to run the app to repair disk permissions. You may have to start up from the installer disk for Tiger to get access to the program.
