    Upgrading to Snow Leopard....
    Hi guys,
    I'm looking to reinstall snow leopard on my machine (due to the HD corrupting the first time) its currently running windows without snow leopard. I own Snow Leopard but i do not have the disk. i do happen to have .dmg (i ripped the disk)
    Now most sites i looked at for going to snow leopard via USB install said you must have a HFS+ partition....Windows cannot create HFS+ partitions.

    So, i would like some help with the install. Is there anyway to install snow leopard from a windows machine via USB?

    Thanks!

    Ah makes sense. There are ways to do this pretty easily depending on the type of Mac it is. What machine is it?

    If the disk drive on your MacBook is not working...here are your options:

    - fix the disk drive in your MacBook
    - purchase an external disk drive
    - use a 2nd Mac...connect your MacBook to it (firewire cable) via Target disk mode, then do the install

    If your Snow Leopard disk is no good...you will need another one of those as well.
