    I have an Intel Macbook with 10.4.11 running, and I wanted to upgrade to Snow Leopard. I've heard that the $29 upgrade disc will work with 10.4, and I have a couple questions.
    1. I lost the original 10.4 install disc that came with my computer - would that be a problem?
    2. I'm in a college CS program, and I'd like to be able to dual boot Windows onto the laptop. I think in order to do that, I have to do a clean install of OS X after installing Windows - can I do that with the upgrade disc?

    Thank you!

    1. Not a problem. It doesn't check for it or anything.
    2. No need for a clean install, but you can certainly do that if you so choose.

    If you can afford it, you may wish to take this time to upgrade the HDD in your Mac to the largest one you can afford.
