    DVD door removal on Mac Pro

    I have the tear down manual for my 2006 Mac Pro, but it doesn't tell how to remove the shutter doors for the DVD drives. There is one obvious screw, which I removed, but the other side of the unit appears to be clipped into place. I don't want to pull too hard as it's made of soft plastic...

    iBoot ? BIOS ?

    How did you make your iBoot disk? You must use Disk Utility if you are on a Mac or a Windows program that makes bootable disks. I would avoid CDRWs in any case. They can be flakey.

    kext nt installed properly

    Yes it is. Kexts can't be dragged and dropped or copied. You must use a kext installer. Look in MultiBeast for Kext Helper b7. Be sure to run System Utilities in MultiBeast each time you add or delete a kext.
