    Do you have a Snow Leopard DVD? Is your computer capable of running the version of Snow Leopard you have?


    Clean Install of Snow Leopard


         1. Boot the computer using the Snow Leopard Installer Disc.  Insert the disc into the

             optical drive and restart the computer.  After the chime press and hold down the

             "C" key.  Release the key when you see a small spinning gear appear below the

             dark gray Apple logo.


         2. After the installer loads select your language and click on the Continue

             button. When the menu bar appears select Disk Utility from the Utilities menu.

             After DU loads select the hard drive entry from the left side list (mfgr.'s ID and drive

             size.)  Click on the Partition tab in the DU main window.  Set the number of

             partitions to one (1) from the Partitions drop down menu, set the format type to Mac

             OS Extended (Journaled, if supported), then click on the Partition button.


         3. When the formatting has completed quit DU and return to the installer.  Proceed

             with the OS X installation and follow the directions included with the installer.


         4. When the installation has completed your computer will Restart into the Setup

             Assistant. Be sure you configure your initial admin account with the exact same

             username and password that you used on your old drive. After you finish Setup

             Assistant will complete the installation after which you will be running a fresh

             install of OS X.  You can now begin the update process by opening Software

             Update and installing all recommended updates to bring your installation current.
