Installing Mac OS X 10.4

Mac OS X's installer application handles all aspects of a Mac OS X installation. It restarts your computer from the Mac OS X Install DVD, then displays step-by-step instructions to install Mac OS X 10.4 from its install disc. When the installation process is finished, the installer automatically restarts your computer from your hard disk and displays the Mac OS Setup Assistant so you can configure Mac OS X 10.4 for your use.

This part of the chapter explains how to install and configure Mac OS X. Unfortunately, since there's no way to take screen shots of the Mac OS X installation and configuration procedure, this part of the chapter won't be very "visual." Follow along closely and you'll get all the information you need to complete the installation and configuration process without any problems.

Chapter 2 , which discusses Mac OS basics.

You can click the Go Back button in an installer window at any time during installation to change options in a previous window.

Remember, you can skip using the Mac OS X 10.4 installer if Mac OS X 10.4 or later is already installed on your computer. Consult the section titled "Determining Which Mac OS Versions Are Installed" earlier in this chapter to see what is installed on your computer.

To launch the Mac OS X installer & select an installation language


Insert the Mac OS X Install DVD disc in your drive. A Mac OS X Install DVD icon should appear on your desktop (Figure 10 ), along with a Mac OS X Install DVD window (Figure 11 ).

Figure 10. When you insert the Mac OS X Install DVD, its icon appears on the desktop…

Figure 11. …and a Mac OS X Install DVD window opens.


Double-click the Install Mac OS X icon.


An Install Mac OS X dialog appears (Figure 12 ). Click Restart.

If you're using any version of Mac OS X, an authenticate dialog like the one in

Figure 13 may appear. Enter the name and password for an administrator and click OK.

Figure 13. If you're upgrading an existing installation of Mac OS X, you'll have to enter an administrator name and password to complete the installation.


Wait while Mac OS X and the installer load from the DVD disc.


In the first window that appears, select the primary language you want to use with the installer and Mac OS X.


Click the right arrow button.


Continue following the instructions in the section titled "To install Mac OS X" on the next page.


    It's a good idea to open and read the file named Read Before You Install that's included on the Mac OS X Install DVD (Figure 11 ). This document (Figure 14 ) contains important information about compatibility and other installation issues.

    The Authenticate dialog (Figure 13 ) prevents someone without administrator privileges from installing system software. This is especially important on a computer used by more than one person.

    These instructions assume you're installing in English. Obviously, the onscreen instructions will be different if you're installing in another language!

To install Mac OS X


Read the information in the Introduction ("Welcome to the Mac OS X Installer") window.


Click Continue.


Read the information in the License ("Software License Agreement") window.


Click Continue.


Click the Agree button in the dialog sheet that appears.


In the Select Destination ("Select a Destination") window, click to select the icon for the disk on which you want to install Mac OS X. A green arrow appears on the disk icon. The installer automatically knows if it has to upgrade an existing Mac OS X installation or install Mac OS X 10.4 from scratch.


To set advanced installation options, click the Options button. A dialog sheet offers up to three options, depending on what is already installed on the destination disk. Select one of these options and click OK:

    Upgrade Mac OS X upgrades an existing Mac OS X installation to Mac OS X 10.4.

    Archive and Install moves existing Mac OS X System files to a folder named Previous System and installs Mac OS X 10.4 from scratch. You might want to use this option if you suspect there's something wrong with your Mac OS X installation and you want to force the installer to start fresh. If you select this option, you can turn on the Preserve Users and Networks Settings check box to automatically move all existing Mac OS X settings to the new installation. This also skips the Setup Assistant.

    Erase and Install completely erases the destination disk and installs Mac OS X 10.4 from scratch. Use this option only after backing up your data, since all data on the disk will be lost. If you select this option, choose a disk format from the "Format disk as" pop-up menu; your options are Mac OS Extended and Unix File System.


Click Continue.


In the Installation Type ("Easy Install") window, you have two options:

    To perform a standard Mac OS X 10.4 installation, click the Install button.

    To perform a custom Mac OS X 10.4 installation, click the Customize button. In the Custom Install window that appears, toggle check marks to specify which Mac OS X components should be installed. Then click Install.


Wait while software from the DVD is installed. A status area dialog tells you what the installer is doing and may indicate how much longer the installation will take.

When the installer is finished, it ejects the disc, restarts the computer, and displays the first screen of the Setup Assistant.


    If necessary, in step 3 you can use the pop-up menu to select a different language for the license agreement.

    In step 5, if you click the Disagree button, you will not be able to install Mac OS X.

    A note beneath the disk icons in step 6 indicates how much space is available on each disk. You can see how much space a Mac OS X installation takes by looking at the bottom of the window. Make sure the disk you select has enough space for the installation.

    Step 7 is optional. If you follow step 7 and don't know what to select, click Cancel to use the default installation option.

    In step 7, if you select the Erase and Install option and don't know what disk format to choose from the pop-up menu, choose Mac OS Extended (Journaled). (If you wanted the Unix File System option, you'd know it.)

    The Customize option in step 9 is provided for Mac OS X "power users" and should only be utilized if you have a complete understanding of Mac OS X components and features.
