    Missing iLife
    I just bought a new 24" iMac and am loving it. However, I'm a little perplexed with the situation with iLife. Having purchased my iMac from an Apple Retail Store the weekend that Leopard came out, it came with a Leopard upgrade disc. I know that each new Mac comes with iLife, and mine did with the Tiger installation, however when I applied the Leopard upgrade, iLife was no longer present. How do I avoid this?

    I assume that new iMacs will come with Leopard pre-installed and iLife included pretty soon, so how come I'm missing out on iLife just because I bought my iMac after Leopard's launch but before they managed to shift the old stock?

    Any advice appreciated

    So you simlpy upgraded, or did you format and upgrade?

    I'd just reinsert the Tiger disc and choose install applications only, and choose iLife again. But I would expect a simply 'upgrade' would actually retain your applications.

    Agreed with above responders. I upgraded, not erase and install, and the iLife applications were retained. If you did erase & install, the provided Tiger OS disks should allow you to install just those apps.

    yeah contrary to what most people believe, iLife is NOT part of OS X and is its on entity. iLife can be found on your restore discs that also include Tiger on it just select install applications only.
