I recently replaced the hdd in a G41. I have the original RnR 6-CD set, but none are bootable. Apparently I'm missing a startup disc.
Is this available anywhere?
Any help/advice is appreciated.

In many cases the boot-CD is unreadable, caused by dirt or fingerprints.
Clean the CDs with a damp microfibre fabric and try again.
Please take care, that the CD-ROM is enabled as boot device in BIOS under "Startup"-"Boot".

Thanks for the response, and for finding the part.
I agree, it is strange, as I also have a G40 set (4 discs) and it will boot to disc 1 of that set.
And yes, these machines are reliable. After about 6 years of virtually continual business and personal use, I'm having a hard time sending it to the garbage heap...
I'll get this disc ordered, and thanks again for the help.
