View Full Version : System Re Install question

27th April 2010, 01:52 PM
I have a corrupt system file and wish to install a fresh system but keep all my settings, documents, email etc. I tried a erase and install but this didn't fix my system so I have to install a brand new one. I know how to erase my HD and re format using disk utility. I back up with time machine to an ext HD.

When my disc is erased I will format the new drive. Do I install a fresh system from the CD and then disc utility>restore from Time machine? Or just disc uitility> restore from time machine without installing a new system first?
