| I do have some iMac 10.4.7 original install discs from 2006.
They are from a similar vintage mac, but not that one.
I have tried booting the Bad mac from these disks before, and it did not work.
Maybe I can install to a random sata drive, put it in the bad mac. boot it up
then update the firmware. upgrade to 10.6, upgrade the firmware again, then boot from the new drive.
I am going to try this..
I hope it works..
