    get a copy of OSX and reinstall the OS.
    replacing a HD on an ibook is a notoriously difficult procedure that i would advise against.

    you shouldn't buy stolen laptops unless they're stolen from rich white kids or large companies.

    seeks, yeah i bought it from someone who stole it from this person at starbucks who left their laptop on a table by the exit while the went to the bathroom.

    but i figured out that if you re-start the mac holding down the c key it automatically goes into the installation software.

    thanks for the response htough.

    ehhh, im not feeling this.
    if it was some rich frat kid who got too drunk at some party and you pilfered his room, thats one thing, but this shit is pretty weak to me.
    i kind of hope it electrocutes you or something.
    nothing personal, it's just sort of like stealing bikes...shit is bad juju.

    thats funny.. i almost stole a laptop from some fool in a bar last night, but i don't steal from people, so i didn't... people need to stop slipping for real tho.

    get ahold of someone's system installation disk, press c as the ibook starts up & install a new hard drive.
