    Default Looking for help installing SL on my laptop *WILLING TO SEND $$ FOR HELP*

    Hello,

    Currently, I have a Toshiba Satellite A665-S6050 laptop.

    Specs:

    Processor: Intel i3 370m
    Motherboard: Toshiba NWQAA
    Graphics: Intel HD
    HD: 500gb - 7200rpm



    The laptop is running Windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.10 dualboot. I am new to the whole OSx86 scene and have a few questions.


    The perfect setup would be installing SL on a new partition of my my HD, but with my current setup I already have the maximum amount of partitions.

    This is my current setup:
    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/22075283/Capture.JPG

    I was wondering what partition I can overwrite to install SL?
    -The first NTFS partition, is that needed?
    -And also the HDDRECOVERY, what is the purpose of that?

    Secondly, I need to know that my laptop is compatible with OSx86.

    -I have gotten the Retail SL disk to boot with the iboot cd, but couldnt install due to not having a free partition.

    -My computer has a SATA port, could I buy an external HD and install SL to that?

    *Finally, as mentioned in the title of this post, I am willing to give someone that helps me a little "tip" on paypal.*

    If you could help me with any of my questions it would be greatly appreciated.


    Thanks!

    Thanks!
    Ok, yes, your computer is compatible with OSX86. Second, never delete a partition if you don;t know what it does. The partition HDDRECOVERY is used in case your computer is messed up and the hard drive was raped. There is a swap partition used by Ubuntu that you don't need. It's used as a backup if your ram is full. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SwapFaq. Yes you can install Snow Leopard from a new SATA Drive!


    But all you have to do is delete that swap partition, minimize the other partitions until you have about 30 Gb of free space. Then create a NTFS partition. When you are starting the installation go to Utilities>Disk..... Partition for NFS+ journaled

    The only question I can't answer is the "first NTFS drive" idk


    PS: all the apple signs say i answered ur questions XD

    Also you will need EasyBCD 2.1 for the computer to have the menu
