Hi,
Does anyone know if I am renstalling os x on my MacBook pro do I use the original disks that came with the computer or as I have upgraded to snow leopard do I use that disk?
Also do I select the macintosh HD drive or there is a drive above (can't remember the name) Do I selec that one? I can't seem to find any good guides online!!
Cheers

if you use time machine then do it via that using install discs and follow instructions

or for a full wipe its best to use leopard discs-update osx-snow leopard disc-update osx


use mac HDD..erase and install option

If your upgrade is an "Upgrade" and not a full version then you will have to re-install the original system first before you update it.
If your Snow Leopard is a full version then just use that.

I am selling my current MacBook pro so looking to erase the data and remove the applications I have downloaded and do a clean install.
