    If you have OS 10.1 or below, do you pretty much have to do an erase and install to get it back on or can you install but just in a differn't system folder?

    You can install it in a different system folder as long as your filesystem is already HFS+ and not corrupt.

    Thanks for the info, so I guess it's possible to have os 10.1 installed on a non HFS+ volume then? I guess you probably cannot convert to HFS+ if it's not already without formatting. Thanks for the info, I guess if 10.1 is installed and not on HFS+ then you have to erase the disk to re install? Or can you reinstall in the same system folder just not a different one?

    Can you go into a bit more detail about what exactly it is you're trying to do... and why you're doing it with the very early and unrefined Mac OS 10.1.

    You actually can install onto either HFS+ or UFS. Not FAT or anything else, though.
