Chapter 2. Installing Mac OS X > Installing Mac OS X

Installing Mac OS X

Installing Mac OS X is much like installing 9.x. The process has changed slightly with the new version because it takes place under Apple's Mac OS X Installer program, booted from a “lite” version of Mac OS X on the Install CD. The entire process will take roughly 20 minutes on a G4 system, or 30–45 minutes on a slower G3.

If you're running Mac OS 9.x and have inserted the Mac OS X 10.0 CD, double-click the Install Mac OS X icon. Your computer will display a welcome message and then restart after a few moments and begin to boot from the CD. If you are starting the installation from a power-off state, make sure that the CD is in your drive, and then start the computer while holding down the C key.
