I have iMac Rev.B (Bondi blue), with 8.6 installed. I upgraded to 8.6 (from 8.5.1 with firmware and iMac Updates).

When I want to start up from Norton Utilities 4.0 CD ROM, the machine keeps on displaying the MacOS 8.6 startup pict and hangs before extensions/control panels are loaded (yes, even with the 'c' keyboard shortcut or NU 4 as startup disk).

HElp !!! How can I boot from the NU4 CD ROM

i also have iMacB -- no problem selecting NU4.0 icon in startup disk on apple menu and rebooting. If that isn't working for you, you might try holdong 'c' key down while booting with cd in place. my only problem w using NU4.0 is that computer keeps booting off of it after use even though HD is reselected (so i manually remove cd after first bootup chime).
