Hi,

Has anybody used the "c" option at the yaboot promt to launch the OS X restore DVD in order I can run the hardware test (my cdrom is playing up hence the need hardware test + apple support will make me do it when I contact them) ?

I mangaged to really mess up things last time I tried and needed to some alt option (apple) p-r to get back into gentoo.
Hence why I post.

I generally avoid that option totally ... if its a one time boot thing and you don't want to change your OF settings ... hold down option at bootup to get a graphical boot menu, which should show you the option to boot the CD (if it's in the drive when it gets scanned).

It takes a moment or two to complete the scan, but it's a handy thing to have built in :)
