    Hello I am wondering if there is a way to make a hard drive have the same pre-installation of Leopard that apple puts on the original hard drive. I don't want it completely installed and I don't want to put the cd in there. The Hard drive is formatted as Journaled.

    You could just install it and not complete the setup procedure...

    Just do the install and then when the video comes up - do a forced shut-down.

    Next time it starts-up you get the video and can fill in all the info.

    Common procedure for people selling Macs on eBay.

    Make sure you do a 1-pass or 7-pass wipe before selling.
