    ok, as mentioned in an earlier thread the .11 update completely screwed up my macbook and i had to reinstall the os from the disc.

    can anyone tell me how i can update to 10.4.10 again without going up to 11?

    thanks.

    You can go to the apple website, look for and download the 10.4.10 COMBO Installer (make sure you download the Intel one).

    had no issues with either my Macbook or iMac.
    I think you may have just been unfortunate that one time?

    Have you thought of doing a clean install, then a 10.4.11 combo install?

    Got nothing to lose, back up only the essential, format the sucker, then after the clean install, install 10.4.11 combo, then everything after that.

    I've found:

    Clean OS install -> OS Update -> Application Updates/installation

    Are the best steps to take.
