    Hey fellas.

    Question: I already have snow leopard installed on my iMac. But can I still do a CLEAN snow leopard installation onto my imac even though snow leopard is already installed?

    I tried it just now like twice but I got the spinning wheel of death. It wouldn't go pass the apple sign and spinning wheel.

    Sure. You can do so from your system restore disks if the iMac came with Snow Leopard preinstalled, or from the Snow Leopard install/upgrade disks from your purchased copy if you've upgraded. Just insert the disk (or disk 1 of the restore disks) and hold C on startup.
