Is hard disk obliteration required for successful install? - 02-05-2010, 08:28 AM
Hi guys - Long-term Mac OS X and first-time hackintoshing user here.
I've been reading this guide on Gizmodo and I was wondering about the step where it tells you to completely wipe your netbook's HD.
Is this skippable? I really don't want to lose the stuff on there.
In-depth explanation: (Not necessary for reading, but might give insight)
The government recently got around to actually giving me the stuff I'd been promised to help with my disabilities and one of the things was a Dell Mini 10v. It's a bit fiddly compared with the Macbook Pro I used to use (especially the trackpad!), but it was free and it weighs nothing, so it's not to be sniffed at.
Anyway, it comes with loads of premium software, 3 years of insurance and free 24/7 technical support, which all hinges on a few bits of private software that auth it and such, and I suspect that if Nuke'n'Paved the HD I would lose both the insurance and the software for good.
Is there a way around this?
(Oh also if this is in the wrong section I apologise - it seemed most appropriate)
