A few questions regarding FCS upgrade please...
on Aug 11, 2010 at 5:35:07 pm

After reading a bunch of posts on upgrading, I'm now more confused than ever! Actually I have a plan but had a few questions first. I think I will do clean install on a new hard drive.

1. I have 10.5.8 now. Do I HAVE to get Snow Leopard, or is it just a good idea to stay with an upgraded OS?

2. I noticed Snow Leopard for $29 on Apple's website, but that's for the upgrade. Can I use that disc to do a clean install on a blank hard drive, or would I have to buy a full version of Snow Leopard?

3. Should I update all the drivers/firmware on my peripherals after install, or just wait to see which ones don't work or are buggy, and THEN update?

4. Any other issues with a new install? (Using old files, settings, etc.)



Thanks all...

From 10.5 you need a full upgrade See Amazon for about $100.00
You don't HAVE to upgrade. Do u want to?
If you do, it's best to clean install everything w/ the latest.
