Default $29 Snow Leopard Upgrade Verion or Full Version Required? - 09-11-2009, 11:35 PM


Ok I see all the install methods for Snow Leopard on here, and they look great, but I have a question.

If I have a brand new Mini 9 and am doing a FIRST EVER install of Snow Leopard with the official methods listed here, can I use the $29 Upgrade version I find in stores, or do I have to look for a "Full" version of Snow Leopard?

Or do I have to install Leopard first, and THEN upgrade to Snow Leopard?
Many thanks for the clarification!

Dell Mini 9 | 2gb RAM | 30gb Dell SSD Drive | Factory Bluetooth | 1.3 megapixel Webcam | BIOS A05 | DELL EFI 1.2a5 | Mac OS X 10.5.7

The $29 "Upgrade" disc is a full retail version, not just an upgrade. You can do a clean full install from scratch with it.
