    Hey I'm doing a clean install of SL,
    I'm in Disk Utility and I have two options to choose from, one is a Internal SATA Disk (called Fujitsu ... Media), the other option is a Mounted Volume (Macintosh HD),
    Which should I choose?, I believe the latter is a partition (the only partition).

    Kind Regards

    Thank You

    EDIT: There is two files left (300MB) after the erase, and it reported no problems, is this normal?

    Kind Regards

    How do you know that there are two files left of 300 mb? Or do you deduce it from the reported size of the hard disk? If so, it probably are controllers etc..., no need to worry about that.

    It says in Disk Utility: Number of folders 3, Number of files 2, Disk space used 300MB.

    Kind Regards

    EDIT: I've proceeded with the installation, but I can re-do it if necessary if those files shouldn't be there, anyone know?

    I am not entirely sure bt it seems normal - even "empty" disks are not empty. Some controllers, information on volume structure etc... have to be written on them. So just go ahead.
