much worse is relative - it's always bad when something like that happens

but i would do pretty much the same

- reset the iMac like this and that

if the iMac still won't boot

- use the instllerdisk and try to boot up. use the disk utility to check/repair permissions

a few more infos are here

great answer if the asker knows that those colored words are links to solutions. Also how to start up from the installer disk.


you're right richard - i didn't think about that. but here we go: you have to press and hold the C key your keyboard to start from the installer disk
