Checking System Requirements

The first step in installing any operating system is to make sure that your hardware meets the system requirements. In addition, no matter which partition you decide to install to, you should always back up your data first. Now, the next step with either method is to insert the installation disk. From there you will be prompted to reboot, and the computer will boot to the disk.

Figure 377: Installation of MAC OS X

 


You should be automatically prompted to reboot, but in case you are not, you can just restart the computer with the disk in the drive and hold down the C key during the restart, which is the Mac keyboard shortcut for booting from the CD drive. When your Mac is ready for you, you may be presented with several icons such as “Read before you install” and “Welcome to Mac OS X”, or you may be presented with these prior to the restart. It is always smart to look at these prior to running the installation. There will also be icons for folders for other languages (i.e. Japanese, French, Italian, etc.), ignore these for now. Even if you want to install these, you do not do it from here; you will be given the opportunity during installation should you wish to do so. Personally, I like to keep my install as short and sweet as possible, so I avoid the extra languages.
