hey guys, this is just a thread to show my excitement. well thanks to alot of you guys, i finally pulled the trigger on a scorpio blue 320gb. newegg had them for 65 shipped so i figured i might as well do it. hopefully i wont have any problems with it. question time! LOL im not planning on restoring from a back up. Want to start completely fresh. i researched how to install it (which looks like cake) but i seem to be stuck on what to do after i start up the computer. I boot up from my cd, than what? I want to wipe the HDD just in case and than install OSX. the two directions i got were. http://www.macinstruct.com/node/130 (towards the bottom) and http://www.extremetech.com/article2/0,2845,2119581,00.asp which one should i follow? dont know if partitioning is necessary. hard drive noob here LOL. does anyone have some updated step by step directions on how to set up the hard drive from the restore cd's and NOT from a back up?
