    Hmm, this just occurred to me. I have a new iMac, which came with iLife 08 installed. It came with two system install DVDs but no other software discs.

    If I archive and install Leopard, I can reinstall all my apps from the original installers I have, but what about iLife 08? I have no installers for it, but it came pre-installed on my iMac.

    Am I going to lose iLife 08? Can I reinstall it from the original system DVDs? Or does Leopard have iLife 08 built in?

    In the past I've always used archive and install rather than upgrade (which I know will keep everything as it is).

    archive and install will leave ilife '08 intact. leopard does not have ilife '08.

    ilife '08 is on the your mac's second install dvd. if you want to install ilife '08 again pop in install dvd one then double click on install bundled software and then customize your install to just install the ilife apps. youll have to then pop in install dvd two.
