Stuck in a Bootloop what can I do?

Hey guys,

My current problem is that my imac stucks in a Bootloop somehow.

One Day it just went down and since then the imac stucks in a Bootloop.

I tried to start the imac in safe mode, even a start from a bootable USB didn't work.

I also Tried to boot from a CD and everything didn't work.

Maybe smth overheated because the day were the imac broke down was a really hot day.

Thanks for Answeres.

Check the optical drive and see if a disk is in it. If not open the machine and disconnect the hard drive. Next insert your original system installation disk and see if it will boot. Here's how: iMac Intel 24" EMC 2134 and 2211 Hard Drive Replacement

Review this Apple T/N: About the screens you see when your Mac starts up. Can you tell us which screen it restarts at? Also see if the T/N offers a solution and give that a try.

You may also need to find a cooler location to use your system. Once it starts up normally, you may want to install a good temperature monitoring app like: Temperature Gauge Pro it may help you isolate the reason why the system is having problems.
