Just press "Any Key" to continue. What's that, you say? Your computer doesn't have an Any Key? Hmm... this could be serious...

Ha ha. Its just a 'bomb', the computer crashed. Consider yourself a mac-crash non-virgin!

Plug it back in and reboot.

Their's nothing to worry about. All that has happened is your computer has crashed. Simply plug it back in and be on your jolly way.

However, if you want to get rid of those errors, may I suggest Mac OS X from www.apple.com/macosx? Its really cool and WON'T EVER CRASH! Its amazing. Its no Windows XP, but good enough for you.

225 "megahurts"? So that's how they measure the detonation power of those system error bombs.

This one gets my vote for the MacNN post of the year.

No offense intended to the starter of the thread. (Un)fortunately, iMacs are not explosive devices. Even with FireWire. Just click Restart in the lower right hand corner of the error message. And swear at it a lot.

Umm, you know, they never made an iMac that was 225 Mhz.. 233,266,333,350,400 and so on. My guess is that you probibly have a 233 Mhz iMac, it will also be known as rev A or rev B depeding on the internal graphics card, ATi rage IIc was in the rev A, ATi rage pro in the rev B, just sort of FYI stuff
