First you need to boot from your software restore CD. but the CD in the Drive and reboot your machine and hold down the "C" key After you get the smiley Mac then you can let go and let it boot up in the CD. Next what you can do if you want is use drive setup and reinitialize your HD. Then re-install the system from the install CD. Once you have doen that reboot your machine again holding down the "CKey and let it boot from the CD again anf then Proceed to instal the update.

Typoon............

How can you tell him to do a Clean Instaii using a OS CD when he has no OS CD..

All he has is the OS 9.1 download from the Apple site. I am no aware of being able to do a Clean install without a OS CD.......Correct me if I am wrong...

If you reinitialize your hard drive, say good bye to everything you had on it. I'd skip that part.

George I was saying that since he said he backed it up or I would assume so. He could install it from his disk image in Backup.

Hey guys!! What a silly question I made... there is no clean install if what I downloaded was the UPDATE!!
I'm sorry about this... I don't know if I will switch to this update... I've seen a lot of people complaining about it... I would do it if I could make a clean install but... that's it! Thanx everybody!

I had an idea... what about if I reinitialize my HD, install 9.0.4 again and withou installing anything else, I install the update 9.1? And then I start loading my HD with all the "crap" ?
I'll try, and post all the opinions in a new topic!
