    Installing Snow Leapard over Lion by wiping hard drive?
    Hi All,

    Sorry if this question is really stupid, but I don't want to lose my iMac! I have a 2009 iMac, and recently upgraded to Lion. After upgrading i realised Logic Pro 8 stopped working, as did Melodyne. These are things i use in every day life and are extremely important. So i want to go back to Snow Leopard, and having read around this seems simple enough if you've got a carbon copy backup of it...i don't. I've backed up all important docs, music, photos etc etc off my Mac, and i was just going to erase the current data off my HDD, and just re-install Snow Leopard clean on to this? Will this work or will i still have issues?

    Thanks in Advance.

    This should work without a hitch, yes.
