    Computer Lab
    I have recently taken over responsibility for a computer lab of 30 iMacs. I want to upgrade them all from Leopard to Snow Leopard. I'm wondering what the fastest way would be to get Snow Leopard on all the machines?

    If each computer is a "stand alone" machine....sit down at computer #1, insert disk, repeat, repeat, repeat!

    Specs:
    Late 2013 rMBP, i7, 750m gpu, OSX versions 10.9.3, 10.10
    If their on a network, I am pretty sure there is a remote install option that's available (check under utilities) - but you may have to have one already up and running or a server - I've never done a remote install.
    My Macs: Late 2013 rMBP w/ 750m, 16Gig ram; 2013 Mac Pro 6 core w/ D700, 16Gig Ram; Mac mini G4, 1.25 GHz, 512m ram (server); Late 2011 11" MBA, 1.8GHz i7, 4Gig Ram, 256Gig SSD, HD3000; Powerbook 12" G4 1.33GHz running Linux; Apple TV (1080p version)

    Good one! Of course students being students...you gotta rebel against "The-Man"...and proceed to mess up the installation!

    Please don't take this the wrong way. But will you have full permission to do this? Are you autonomous from the IT department? If so, tell me how you did it. Thanks

    P.S. If the answer was yes. By All Means, load them all up, even if it means one at a time.
