Will up-grade to 10.6x from 10.4.11 erase the WindowsXP? The Win XP is inoperative. Just make it go away.

The Windows XP that came with Mac pro Intel based 10.4.11 has died. The mouse and everything in it is untouchable on the Windows side only. The Tiger side runs perfectly. I would just like to remove the XP and run a pure Snow Leopard OS machine. Will the simple upgrade to 10.6 do it or do I need to resort to more drastic measures?

  • YES! You can upgrade! However, you may want to run bootcamp and "repartition" your harddrive (the one windows is on). You will lose any files on that partition, but will be able to reinstall windows (so it actually works). That way you are using your MacPro to its full potential, some apps just don't run on Mac's.
