I bought a 2nd hand santa rosa macbook black (late 2007). The guy say he misplace the restore/install DVD and he burn a leopard install disc for me. Right now I try to reinstall leopard but it promot "Mac OS x cannot be installed on this computer" after I choose my language. I already try to erase the harddisk and name it Macintosh HD under Guid. What is the problem? I scare if I buy original leopard also got this problem. Is it possible to ask apple for another restore/install disc for my macbook black?

do we need to do disk defrag or disk cleanup like Windows, for Mac OS?? If yes, what kind of programmes and where to find?

TQ!

Insert the system restore discs, reboot. When you're booting up, press and hold C to boot from the optical drive.

Follow the onscreen instructions - there will come an option to Erase and Install, Archive and Install, or Upgrade. Choose Erase.

Thanks dan.

As I will be taking over a older imac, i was told that i no need to reformat as my name can be set as the main adminstrator then i can hv all the rights and delete rest of the past accounts.

If I do that, all data in the past accounts will be deleted as well? Or it is better to reformat?

As it is rather a old imac, where can i check how much RAM can it support? because i feel like buying more RAM to upgrade this old imac.

Anyway i'm a new mac users by the standards of question i ask...

Nevermind, I think that is a lesser issue.. More bigger problem is no matter how many times i tried, i cannot get to back up my existing drive using super duper.. It works through halfway and prompt different error.. I is deads..
