Hi folks, A new iMac's on it's way, and I intend to: 1. Force install Snow Leopard instead of Lion as the main system, through the FireWire method and a older MacBook. Yes I need to run non Lion-compatible stuff. 2. Install a BootCamp partition with Windows 7, mainly for gaming. Question is: should the drive be formatted? I'm not familiar with Lion's new ways yet. * A. Should I format the whole drive completely from the MacBook, thus erasing also Lion's hidden Recovery partition? Would that be desirable or even at all possible? or * B. Should I just erase the original Lion volume and replace it with Snow Leopard, then proceed with BootCamp? Another thing is, if one loses Lion's original Recovery partition for some reason, is it possible to reinstall it later on? Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks.
