about six months ago I purchased a used Imac core i3 (mid 2010) and I love it. My issue is that it was sent to me with os x server installed, I have no need for server and its constant needless background processes and other sluggish features are slowing down my machine when I am trying to produce music tracks. Which is primarily what I do on the mac. I want this crap off of my machine and I want to be able to install either regular snow leopard or lion. Any Ideas? * due to this being a used system I was not given the disks for server they retail for $200 thats ebay's price... dream on * I do NOT want to do a dual boot or some other ridiculous ghetto rig that involves hooking someone else's macbook into my imac. which these are most of the quick fixes I have found online. Im considering just removing the HD altogether getting a blank 2tb replacement and having it installed via a local service center and then I can install a new copy of os x onto it. Will this work with a copy of a regular snow leopard or lion DVD? any other tips you guys have would be greatly appreciated.
