I want to wipe my current Leopard installation and install Snow Leopard on my mac. What is the correct way to achieve this?
It seems like I would need to boot into some disk utility in order to format it, but I'm not quite sure how to do that.
- Insert the Snow Leopard DVD.
- Restart your computer.
- While your computer is restarting, hold down the alt/option key. It will then ask you which drive you want to boot from. Select your DVD drive.
- From there you can select Disk Utlity from the Utilities menu and format the drive, or choose the "erase and install" option.
