    Installing Snow Leopard on a 2007 iMac
    Hi all,

    I am upgrading to a new iMac because I need a larger screen for the work I do.

    My current iMac (Core 2 Duo, 20inch screen, 2.4GHZ, 2GB) is in good condition, so I will try to sell it.

    I obviously want to delete all of my information off it first, so will completely wipe the disk. I haven't got any OS X install CDs (I either didn't get one when I originally bought my iMac, or I've lost it).

    So, if I buy Snow Leopard to re-install OS X after wiping the hard drive, should it install? Is this specification of iMac compatible with that software?

    Many thanks.

    Yes it is compatible with Snow Leopard, and doing a wipe and fresh install would be good.
    For added security you can choose 7 pass "secure erase" which won't take forever but will protect your personal info.
    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .
