  • 10. Now For the Installation <ul><li>If you have found a guide, try and follow it to the letter and command. </li></ul><ul><li>Patches from Apple sometimes work ok? Yes and No and it depends… </li></ul><ul><li>Only reboot “after” you have installed that set of patches, tools or changes. </li></ul>
  • 11. The Installation Continues <ul><li>Read what others have said about their installation experience. </li></ul><ul><li>Request a $1 fee for every OS installation you have had to do in your life. </li></ul><ul><li>Get some coffee and donuts or do the installation at the local pub; alcohol solves all computer issues! </li></ul>Watch Monty Python’s Dead Parrot Sketch!
  • 12. Finally… <ul><li>Cross your fingers and reboot! A lot! </li></ul><ul><li>Enjoy the “trial and error” part of the experience. </li></ul><ul><li>Expect failure! </li></ul><ul><li>Do your homework to find better solutions. </li></ul><ul><li>Share your experiences. </li></ul>Success?
