Hi, I'm new to mac and OS X. When I received my MBP, all the apps (iLife08), were'nt working. Apple tech. support made me do a install (keeping my current files). I've had read around some post, that by doing this, you keep some files and lose some space in your HD. Another point about doing a "Fresh" install is that you may not install all the language files that do too keep some file space on the HD. My questions are following : 1- If I do a fresh install, without keeping my current files. Do the image installed with the Leopard DVD will be exactly the same as the one used in the factory? No loss of anything besides the apps that were installed as well that I do have the CDs? 2- Can I choose which language files I can install or do they come in a full package. (I will be using an english interface with the keyboard layout for french canadian, and spanish too? Can somebody give me a link to all I need to know about formatting the HD or anything related in a clean install of leopard? Thank you for your post. I don't want to mess my MBP so that's what been keeping me to install a fresh image so far.
