How do I erase internal HD without erasing OS?
I just upgraded iMacs from G5 - 17" PowerPC to iMac Duo Core Intel 20" with OS 10.6.
I have no discs for anything newer than OSX. Should I wipe the HD entirely and reload OSX, leaving the next owner to upgrade to 10.5.8? I would prefer to wipe all personal stuff, leaving behind the OS.
How would I do that?
I've decided to take the hard drive back to 0's and 1's and then reload OSX. I'll leave the next owner to decide what system to install. It can't be later than 10.5.8 for a Power PC. Thus, what I need to do I have not done for over 8 years and have forgotten the procedure. I'm remembering a little...do I load OSX CD's and use them to format?
