Hey, I'm new here (as you can tell by my post count). I also posted this message on another forum I'm on, but figured I would probably get a response quicker here. ________________________________________ I did a test on my Macbook Pro today to see how long it would take to install a clean copy of OS X with the provided installation discs and without any software aside from the essential required files. It took about 12 and a half minutes--wow! Installing with the defaults could take hours. Anyways, there are multiple options in the custom install menu. For two of them, I'm not so sure what to choose. Printer Drivers - I currently own an HP printer, and don't plan on getting a new one anytime soon. Is it OK to just select HP? And in the future, if I bought a printer from a different manufacturer, could I install just the driver for that brand without reinstalling OS X? Foreign Language Files - What are these used for? The only reason I could see this being necessary is if I or someone else using my laptop was viewing a Web site written in a language other than English--my parents sometimes visit Chinese-language sites, for instance. In this case do I still need to install all the additional language files, or can I deselect all of them? Also, what if I was viewing a Word document in French? Would I have to have the French language pack installed? Thanks in advance.
