When upgrading hard drive, use older OEM or new retail OS?
I'm upgrading hard drive from OEM 120GB to 500GB and would like to know if I should use the OEM 10.5.6 OS discs or a newer retail version of Snow Leopard that I also have. When working on PCs it's best to use the OEMs as they contain device drivers and then upgrade from there. Also, I've noticed that retail versions tend to be bloated installs and of course I would like to avoid this. I'm thinking OEMs then customized 10.6 upgrade but would really appreciate more seasoned opinions.
Thank you, Teknoman
Is this a good question?
