    I have read the threads posted here in regards to this. However, my question is a bit different. Last night my girlfriends computer broke. We restarted it and it was flashing A broken apple and a question mark sign. So, I reinstalled Mac OS X software cd 1. I installed it so that her old system is still available as archive while making a new one so she did not lose all her files. I have now transfered all her files by flash drive to my computer from her old system.

    So my question is, how do i go about clearing her old system? Should i just completely reinstall mac os x? both cd's? or can i just delete the old system?

    Do an erase and install of Mac OS X. It is one of the options in the installer.

    Be warned, this will delete absolutely everything on the computer (at least everything on the primary hard drive).
