    New iMac / Old iMac
    Having setup my new iMac I now need to prepare my old iMac for sale. Any advice on how best to accomplish this task will be most welcome.

    Regards,

    Fixerman

    Or the Leopard or snow Leopard disc you used when you upgraded the old one?
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

    After you've moved whatever data over to the new iMac that you want, pop in your SL disc, when you get the menu bar, head for Utilities - Disk Utility. Head for the Erase tab and erase the drive, Partition tab to re-partition and format the drive, when done, proceed with re-installing SL.
