Default single boot install osx question/reboot now? - 07-07-2010, 12:54 AM

Okay,on the back up pc writing this. Just followed the mcdrew/meklort guides for 10v osx install. Smoothly the dvd copy to usb went, along with netbook boot maker download, unzip. run. I'm now at this step:

16. HAHA, BEHOLD! This screen here, it's awfully Apple-y! But you're not done yet. Let the install complete, following the regular prompts as you go. When it asks you where to install OS X, select and clear the entire HDD of your device. This will delete everything, so make sure you have your stuff backed up. Update: To be more specific on the "select and clear":
The first thing you need to do is format your HHD. Bring up Disk Utility in the installer select it at the highest level possible. Go to "Partition" and make it a single Mac OS X Extended (Journaled) partition. Before hitting Apply, go to Options and select GUID Partition Table. Then hit apply. I just hit apply, and the usb drive is flashing on and off, and disk utility is showing with my hard drive information.
Do I now reboot?

Quit Disk Utility after partitioning and it will return you to the Snow Leopard installer...then continue with the install to the HD.
