    Important Notes:

    For those of you considering a clean install:
    Please backup your SWSETUP Folder it contains all the relevant drivers and software that comes preinstalled on your machine. The discs must be either DVD-R, or DVD+R. Do not use DVD-R/W read/write type or dual layer discs because the creation process will fail. Instructions here
