So I decided to buy FCS 2 and get rid of the buggy fcp I have. I actually installed it all via time machine, which was setup with my old iMac. I think this is where a lot of the issues are stemming from... FCS2 should be arriving today and I just want to make sure I install it all correctly. Here's what I plan to do: 1. Format Main HD (I don't plan on formatting my 2nd HD, which I will use as my scratch disk. Will that be okay?) 2. Fresh install Leopard 3. Run updates 4. Restart 5. Repair disk permissions 6. Install iLife 08 7. Run updates 8. Restart 9. Repair disk permissions 10. Install FCS2 11. Run updates 12. Restart 13. Repair disk permissions 14. Bring back all my old programs, music, pictures, and relax? Once I start FCP, I'll set the scratch drive to my 2nd HD and have it setup in 1080p mode to work with my HV20. Am I missing anything important?
