Default Dell Mini 10v + External USB Harddrive + SL = Installation Help - 12-13-2009, 10:23 AM

I want to use my USB external harddrive. I have things on my external that I don't want to lose. The external harddrive is formatted for a Mac.

If someone could provide step by step instructions on how to install Snow Leopard from a USB Harddrive that would be great thx

I would say back up the harddrive, install with it, then reverse backup it
