    Hi everyone,

    I am about to sell my 24" iMac on eBay and would like to know the best method for restoring it. The computer originally came with Leopard but has since been installed with Snow Leopard. Therefore, I would like to restore the computer without removing Snow Leopard. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Seems to me you could just wipe the hard drive and do a fresh install of Snow Leopard. Mind you, there could be some legal/licensing issues if you do this without providing the Snow Leopard DVD with the sale.

    Unfortunately, I do not have the Snow Leopard disk anymore. Any other suggestions?

    Thanks.

    Then your choice is to either do a format and install with the Leopard DVDs or purchase another Snow Leopard DVD for $29.
