The best of 2009: to install Snow Leopard from a hard disk

mac-os-x-snow-leopard-icon.jpg If you have many copies of Snow leopard to be installed (for example, an academy, a university or you have bought the Family Pack), instead of used the optical unit, which is terribly slow for these things, you can prepare an external hard disk with an installation of Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard so that everything goes more rapid and fluid. You do not need any additional, alone software the discs Utility, and can prepare it even in a Mac with PPC and under Leopard.

A simple step

It opens the utility of discs that you have in Applications> Utilities and there selects the DVD Mac OS X Install DVD in the side bar of the left. Click in Restoring.

It chooses like origin the DVD of Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard: it drag on the field origin.

In the field I destine, it drags the pertinent portable hard disk (in our case, Travel Kirk). You can choose to erase the destination disc, but if you do not mark it, the information that you have on the disc will remain unaltered and will not resign.

You a progress bar will appear indicating how long absence so that the copy of the DVD should be realized.

Once finished, you connect this hard disk to a Mac and you can already continue any of the processes of installation about which we speak in Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard: Installing

(Route faq-mac).
