I have an iMac with Snow Leopard installed, which I was going to give to my daughter. I decided to reformat it so I put the Snow Leopard disc in and I did not see an option for a clean install so I just ran it. After 45 minutes the iMac booted up exactly as it was before. I now know that you have to go to disc utility to do a clean install, I should have checked that first. Anyway my daughter decided shed rather have a laptop so Im keeping the iMac. So what did I do, install Snow Leopard on top of Snow Leopard? Ive been running it for a couple of hours and everything seems to be working as before, stable and no detection of slow down. Why does the disc even allow you to do something like this, what is the point?
