Doing a full install with the $29 Snow Leopard installation disk?
Please post here your individual experience on this subject.
I did many full installs with the 29$ dvd (ok, 25€ single license and 34€ family license).
the "problem" with the update dvd is simple - it's a retail dvd (thats whats printed on the box) - so what to do - retail is retail.
i installed the dvd's on different machines, some of them were actually mac's - the rest were hackintoshes (asus eee, sony vaio p, a digital engine and so on). i prefer the setup with an usb stick, faster and didn't get scratches.
I could try it with an external firewire drive on a Intel processor machine. Would that count? Can we be investigative with this one? This is something we may need to know and worth checking out co-operatively. Next try a 10.4 to 10.6 upgrade and co-operatively post the results? Thanks for the question lemerise. We might be able to work together. Stranger things have happened.
Yes, it is possible with the Snow Leopard DVD. What you need to do is shut the computer down, press C or the Option key to boot into the boot menu. You will see the DVD there. Once it loads, you can wipe the drive with Disk Utility as normal under Utilities and it will install on a blank drive no problem.
I'm not sure Apple intended this to be the case, though. Just be aware of that, and you will lose the iLife suite. If you don't have it backed up, just go to Apple and have them reload it at the Genius Bar, or download a ISO for it.
