    Question Migration of 10.58 data to new iMac 10.6
    All,

    My G5 is dying, the video ram is going $650 from the Apple store or $900 for the motherboard. I ordered a new 17" quad core i7 but who knows when it will show.

    Good news I have a couple of backups 1 super duper and 1 time machine.

    here is my question when I get my new machine and I try to back it up with time machine wont it erase the 10.6 OS for the 10.58 I have on my backup?

    I am having some pretty bad artifact problem but on this page i have none so i will limp along. I am just not sure i want to trust a firewire migration from a dying machine or one with corrupted files when i have 2 backups that will work.

    Thanks for any advice in advance!

    Rob
