Archive and Install Questions
Posted on 2013-11-18
I want to upgrade 10.4.1on Mid 2007 i Mac.
(1) Please confirm that first I hold the C key down to boot from 10.6 DVD supplied to customer from Apple for this purpose (along with memory to add).
(2) Please provide instructions with screen shots if possible on how to (a) Run Disk Utilities First Aid probably why still under 10.4.1. ie provide the full path name
(3) Most importantly please
(a) Confirm that I boot from the 10.6 DUD by holding the C key down at boot
(b) step by step instructions with screen shots preferred on how to get to the Archive and Install Menu and also check the box for Preserve user and Network settings as this is crucial.
(4) My customer may have forgot her admin password entered at first boot. How do I get to the utility on the 10.6 DVD to reset the admin password as it must be entered to do the upgrade. I mean the password entered at first boot of the mid-2007 iMAC.
