I just got an iMac model A1224, not sure which configuration. On power up it gives a grey screen with a spinner. Sometimes it changes the background to blue but still a spinner, and nothing.
Bad hard drive? Needs a re-install? Any ideas? I'm not really that familiar with this era Mac.
I don't have a CD/DVD to do a boot and re-install or anything. I gather from quick searches online that the max this will do is 10.6. Looks like Apple wants $20 for a disc. Haven't looked to see if I can get one off eBay or something yet.
Also I got a Classic II. I haven't even tried to power that one on yet.
