    Default Really confused - looking to install on Tosh NB200

    Hi Guys,

    I'm a complete newbie to this, so please bear with me

    I have a Tosh NB200, with Win7 already installed. Have been looking through the NB200 thread to get snowleopard installed. Have lots of Q's to piece it all together in my head tho!

    Question is where to start! Do i need to install OSX 10.6.2 before installing SL (does SL install "on top" of OSX? - tho i read here) that Atom support has gone?!?!!?. Do i have to remove win7 to install, and then re-install 7 afterwards?

    Virtually all installs of SL that i have seen involve creating a boot USB from a Mac itself (which i havent got, nor got access to ), however i can install direct from my SL retail DVD that i got from Amazon if that is possible (via external Dvd drive).

    If anyone could offer any advice it would be much appreciated

    Paul

    OSX Snow Leopard is OSX. Even though it is merely a svcpack, it still replaces leopard. I have a snow leopard FULL disc that came with an iMac (not mine ), so I kinda have the same question.

    RebelEFI by Psystar will alow you to boot your sl disc, but I can't be sure about ole Psystar....

    OSX 10.6.x - is Snow Leopard with 32 and 64 bit
    OSX 10.5.x - is Leopard only 32 bit

    You CANNOT install retail discs from Apple to a PC ( that is why you need a bootable OSX disc so you can do stuff post install before you reboot to make it work ). There are now 10.6 Snow Leopard distros that you can use to install it directly skipping the this step. If you want to install the retail version, you still need that bootable OSX disk ( and the retail install will only work on Intel CPUs )
