    Two things to try.

    1) Open up the os x cd and open the start-up disk program in the utilies folder. Choose os x cd and restart.

    2) Insert cd, restart computer and hold down c to boot off cd.


    p.s. os x cd will only boot off Apple branded cd-roms. Can't use external non Apple driver cd-roms.

    Don't start up from the CD? Actually, that would work since the install drive isn't the active system. Maybe that's why it's running slow.

    Well I'm pretty sure that you can only use your internal cd-rom.

    I have one internal 24x cd-rom and 3 externals. 2 are SCSI and one is USB. I can't boot off any of the externals.

    Install os x on the first 8gigs of the hard-drive. Make sure it's on the first partition.
