Hi guys


I just want to confirm something.  I use a Personal Use License of 10.5.1. I have to format my pc.  Is it right that I need to de-authorize before formatting and then authorize after formatting and re-installing?


And can I then install 10.6 over the 10.5.1 install, or can I just install, and authorize with the 10.5.1 authorization? (Same machine, just formatted).
