How do I do a clean install on my old imac?
Ok, I am going to be selling my old imac 20" ( 2007), How do I erase the memory and reinstall the OS?
How long will it take?
I assume I have to reinstall OPS 10.5 and 10.6 ?

Hold down C after the bong which will boot into the CD, first thing you want to do when this boots up is go up to utilities, then disc utilities, then click on the harddrive, erase disc, your HDD will erase.
As soon as this ends, close the window and proceed with installing Leopard/Snow Leopard or whatever Mac OS you have on your computer, easy as pie.
however, if you need some visual instructions, this should help.
