    How do I go about this in regards to the order of things? I upgraded to SL a while ago and now I want to do a clean install. I have no idea how to even get started. Do I have to install Leopard and then SL or just put in my SL cd? Thanks for any help.

    Put in your Snow Leopard CD, boot from it, use the Disk Utility (should be in some menu) to erase the disk, then install Snow Leopard.

    Hey I am having a similar same problem.
    When I installed win using bootcamp and accidently deleted the 200MB EFI partition (Which is invisible).
    Does the method you described above also restore this partition?
