Chapter 2. Installing Mac OS X > Preparing Your Drive for Mac OS X

Preparing Your Drive for Mac OS X

If you've made the decision to move forward with the installation of Mac OS X, you'll need to prepare your hard drive for installation. Mac OS X is very flexible in the possible system configurations allowed, and supports multiple partitions and both UFS and HFS+ out of the box.

Simple Upgrade from Mac OS 9.x

Determining the best configuration depends entirely on your needs. The simplest path to Mac OS X, while maintaining your current system software setup, is to upgrade to Mac OS 9.x9.x, and then perform the OS X installation. Apple recommends this approach only if you have existing data and cannot start from scratch.
