    Because my OS X seems more instable than any Windows 95 installation i've ever worked with (macbook fresh). I want to reinstall all..

    I did install bootcamp a while ago (damn, never should have do that, didn't use it, only caused trouble) so I need to remove that partition too...

    So... how do I work...
    Normally i would put in partionmagic do format all and put in cd... but guess my mac needs some other way...

    I don't need to save anything, just do a very very very clean install.

    Start from your install CD ... then launch DiskUtility and reformat the drive
    (takes less than a minute ). Then quit DiskUtil and launch the installer
    or from the Installer select the option to do a clean install without User preferences or saving previous system.
