Ok quick question. I work as a computer tech and my question is should i use a clone from another apple onto mine (see my other post couple posts down for specs) HP a805n or go from a fresh install? and if it is better to use a clone than a lil advice about boot loader and how to get it going. Thank you.

I would do a fresh installation, although a clone is feasible...I think a fresh installation will be fine, and if you need all the info from your Mac you can boot it in target-disk mode and hook it up to your HP and during setup assistant transfer your info. :)

If you are installing Snow Leopard, I have a guide in my signature. If you are going to clone, simply download a package of Chameleon via Chameleon Wizard.
