When I looked a few weeks ago, there was an option to upgrade to Snow Leopard for £8 if you bought a mac within a certain date. Does it still apply?Best Answer:
In the US and CA: If you bought your computer June 8 2009 or after and within 90 of purchase you can get the Snow Leopard Up-to-Date...this will last until Dec 26 2009. (not sure if this differs in Europe)

I am have visual difficulties. Does the new software have a "speech" program which can read selected text?
If not, then I have to purchase extra software which will do this for me. I select the text and a voice reads it out.

Yes, it is, but it is not installed during a standard upgrade. If a program should ever need rosetta, it will ask you to use your SL disc to install it.

Yes. After starting your Mac Pro from the DVD, select Disk Utility from the Utilities menu to erase the hard drive. This will wipe out everything and allow for a clean install. Make sure you back up all your important data before you start.

Your question is vague. Are you asking if you could run Snow Leopard as an operating system on a Windows Server? If so, the answer is NO. If you are asking if a Mac running Snow Leopard can connect to a Windows Server to access data, then the answer is YES.

Snow Leopard can be installed in a variety of ways.
1) From the internal optical drive (if available)
2) From an external optical drive
3) From the optical drive on another PC or Mac on the same network. (If a PC, when you put the Snow Leopard disk in its optical drive, open the folder "DVDCDSharing" and then launch the program "RemoteInstallMacOSX.exe".) (If the other computer is a Mac, insert Snow Leopard DVD and use the "Remote Install Mac OS X.app" which should be in the Utilities folder on the other Mac.)
4) From a bootable external hard drive or a USB flash drive (flash drive should be least 8GB in size). (Use disk utility to make the flash drive or external hard drive partition bootable. * ) Then, also using Disk Utility, create a DMG file of the Snow Leopard DVD, and then restore it to the USB flash drive or external hard drive. Insert USB flash drive into MacBook (or connect the external hard drive) and start up from it to install Snow Leopard.
5) From a new small, partition on the MacBook (at least 8 GB in size). Use Disk Utility to create the new partition * . Then, using Disk Utility on another Mac, create a DMG file of the Snow Leopard install disk and either put on a flash stick or copy the DMG file over network to the main partition on the MacBook. Restore the DMG from the file to the new, bootable partition. Start up from the new bootable partition and install Snow Leopard.
Any one of the above methods should work. For more detailed step by step instructions search for "Remote Install of Mac OS X".
* In option 4 or 5, to create an Intel Mac bootable partition or flash drive, select the hard drive or flash drive in Disk Utility, click on the Partitions tab, click on the Option button and select "GUID Partition Table" for the partition you want to boot from. Note that GUID should be default format for partitions on internal drives, but you have to specify that format for external and flash drives.
