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 :)

Have you got the restore disk for that old mac or an OSX Tiger install disk

Or the Leopard or snow Leopard disc you used when you upgraded the old one?

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.

All done without a hitch and already listed on eBay. Thanks for your advice folks!:)
