    Hey ya'll,

    just wondering, I am doing a clean install of leopard on my Macbook Pro 2.5Ghz (Early 2008) model. The machine came with leopard installed. It came with the 2 grey install disc.

    Now when I go through the process of doing a clean install, and I go under the custom option, in the bundled software, garageband, idvd, iweb, are all checked off and it says "install"

    iphoto is there, but it is uncheckable and it says "Skipped"

    WTF?

    What is up with that, after my clean install is finished, will iphoto be on there?

    Please someone let me know the answer, thank you very much!

    I think I have the same problem.

    My new iBook came with all iLife apps pre-installed, apart from iPhoto. I slipped the Bundled Software disk in, and on a custom install all apps are selectable, apart from iPhoto which is grayed out and reads SKIP.

    The Apple Store website tells me my mac comes with iLife including iPhoto.. Whats up with that?

    Hobo.

    Try looking in /Library/Receipts for anything iPhoto related. If there is then Installer thinks you already have iPhoto installed.

    Thanks for the response.

    Seems I was being a little stupid.. it was a grayed out install check box because iPhoto was already installed.

    For some reason Spotlight hadn't indexed it, so I assumed it wasn't there.

    :confused:

    A simple look in the Applications folder would have sufficed.
