Unfortunately Apple just don't support this. Very disappointing.

It's a pressed DVD - I'm not too sure about the version, but there are no outstanding updates available for the Mac. I have a feeling the external drive is something to do with this? It's a USB external from Samsung.

Stu, thanks for these - but I'm still not getting anywhere. After holding down the option key and waiting for the computer to boot the disc, the CD drive sounds like its starting up then just stops, leaving me with a blank screen.

On the black screen? Or in OSX? I get nothing on the black screen at all.
