Install Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard with confidence!

Installing a major new version of Mac OS X should be exciting and fun, but without proper guidance you may find it nerve-wracking or even lose valuable files. Fortunately, many thousands of people have upgraded Mac OS X calmly and successfully with Joe Kissell's previous best-selling Take Control of Upgrading... titles. Joe's friendly, expert steps—developed over innumerable test installations—help you to avoid trouble, understand what's going on when you install Snow Leopard, and easily recover from problems that might arise. The ebook will help you:

  • Evaluate if your Mac is ready to run Snow Leopard.
  • Complete crucial pre-upgrade steps that help you avoid trouble.
  • Make a bootable duplicate in case Joe's easy Plan A doesn't work for you.

  • Perform a few important post-installation tasks and tweaks.
  • Solve problems that might arise after installing—such as a Mac that won't boot.
