I have a livecd that works on Windows. When I boot the Mac with it in and hold the option button, it shows the hard drive, a cd called "Windows" and a cd called "EFI boot". if I click on the Windows cd it says

  1. [no text here]
  2. [no text here either]

Select cd boot type:

and it doesn't allow me to input anything. If i click on EFI boot, it gives me a command prompt but I don't know what do do there. Anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

Try it! ;)

I'll give it a try, but this is a 32 bit mac, so I'm not sure if it will work – user113664 Dec 9 '12 at 19:36
