    Leopard to Snow Leopard
    Hi Guys

    Earlier on today I installed a new hard drive in my MacBook Pro, formatted it, installed the OS and put all my programs back on etc. All was good until I realised that I had installed Leopard instead of Snow Leopard (What a fool HaHa). Is there a way that I can upgrade to Snow Leopard without loosing all I have installed already?

    Any help would be great.

    Chears guys

    (PS: I do have the Snow Leopard disc)

    Yes...just boot the computer from the Snow Leopard disk...and proceed with the install...easy.

    Just in case (only as a precaution) backup any files you don't want to lose. Personally I have never had a problem...better safe than sorry.
