Default Upgrading to SL from 10.5.8 - 09-30-2009, 02:18 PM

Hi All,

I have 10.5.8 running stable on my 10v/2GB/A04 Bios. I had to choose the Dell EFI 3 route (DellEFI 3: Installing using External DVD Drive | Guides | OS X | mechdrew) as I didn't have an Intel Mac to begin with (Have an old G3).

Can I go ahead and upgrade to SL without any problems? I have an external DVD. Also I don't have sound yet but I didn't research the fix for it yet.

Fix the sound first & try SL upgrade or never mind?

I went with a clean install of SL from the single USB via Mac method. It cleared up a number of issues I was having from the duct-tape-style install of 10.5.8 I had going. Very clean and very easy.
