    Should I do a clean install or regular install? I have not transferred any files yet in my 2-week old MBP in anticipation of the ML, photos and videos are all stored in the cloud. The problem is I deleted all the installers of the apps, I need to redownload them all if I will do a clean install. Next time I will save the installers in a dedicated partition just like what others are doing.

    Backup with Time Machine to be sure. Then just run the installer. Your files will be intact and working (if supported). If you want a cleaner installation, do a clean installation and use Migration Assistant to get your user files and apps from the Time Machine disk. Logically this is cleaner. However I suspect the results will be the same for both methods.

    Hi everyone. I just need a little help here. I've been downloading iPhoto '11 since this morning. But when its going to be done an error occurred happened. I don't what that means. But I already did everything: restart mac, sign out/in of MAS, etc. But when I'm clicking the "install" button its always an error. What happened kaya? I hope you guys can help me. Thanks!

    Intermittent isp. Try during off peak hours or use a 3G device.

    Thanks for the quick reply but I've been switching to different wifi routers here in our house. Actually we have 3 ISPs here. two globe and 1 pldt. I'm trying to use all of them. Still cannot get rid off that "error has occurred" thing. :(

    You can install ML on all your Macs on a single purchase. :)
    You can re-download it from App Store and then create a USB Installer. :)

    Have you tried the 3G route? Seemed to work for most people. I did it too and it was pretty quick.

    I don't have any phone that has tethering capabilities. Is there any way that I can try the 3g route? Thanks!

    You could try to use one of those Globe USB sticks. But I haven't tried them before so I'm not sure. But if that's not an option then I guess you'd just have to wait it out.

    that gesture only works with the magic Trackpad. you can create a keyboard shortcut if you want. :)
