I installed a western digital 5400 rpm hard drive on my imac ( have the original imac that came with 4 gb upgraded to 30 gb) when i turn my imac on all i get is a blinking question mark. How do I install the operating system. The CD rom tray won't open.


Thank you

thank you for the reply. I think I figured out how to get the CD-Rom tray open. I opened the computer and discovered something on the inside was not fully plugged in. Alas I have a new problem I formatted the hard drive and then attempted to install mac os 9.1 on it. Everything went fine but when I restart, my imac starts up from the CD-Rom. I have even tried changing which disk it should startup too in the startup disk in the control panels. The hard drive is there, get info tells me 29GB. Any ideas?
