Hi everyone. I hope you can help me out with a problem I've been trying to fix for a long time.

So I got a new copy of Snow Leopard for my Air, and installed it with Remote Disc (or.. Tried to). Connection to the other drive failed and I tried installing again. Yay, finally! So I had Snow Leopard up running, but I noticed 2 disks showing on my desktop - ''INSTALL OSX''. Now, they appeared after the frustrating install of the new Snow Leopard, and I have no idea how to remove the disks! I tried the Disk Tool-thing but was unable to delete them.

Any of you able to help me?

Thanks

right click on them and select eject

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

This way they will not be deleted. And I'll have to do this everytime I boot up again?...

If you do as bobtomay suggested, when you reboot, they should not appear on your desktop...
However, if you reboot and they are still there, please take a screenshot and post it!
