Hello!

May I possibly ask how to go about installing and authorizing on a new partition in my iMac internal hard disk drive that would run on a different OS (High Sierra) from the original internal hard disk drive (partition) which is running Lion?

I am running Lion 10.7.3 (so old, I know) on a mid-2011 iMac and run VSL with the Vienna Key. I currently have VI Special Edition Vol 1 installed in my iMac's internal hard disk drive that has yet to be partitioned and also currently have the accompanying libraries/content on an external drive. 

When I do partition, which should be soon, I plan to install High Sierra and use VI Sp Ed 1 on that new partition (on that very same iMac computer) for use in Logic Pro.

So, my question is: How should I go about the install and authorize procedure in this scenario? Would I have to uninstall and "un-authorize" VSL from my HDD partition running Lion and then install and authorize on the new partition running High Sierra?

I read another thread in the VSL Community where someone inquired about moving VSL to a new Mac machine, and the response was this: "You will not need a new key.  You can just plug in your external hard drive with the samples to your new computer.  Then plug in your current Key to the new computer." The reply was very clear; however, I'm not sure how it would apply or be modified taking into consideration my scenario that I will be running on a different partition with a different OS on the same machine/computer where, in another parition running a different OS, VSL had been previously installed.

Apologies for the lengthy post. I'm currently in-transit with my set-up and have had little luck searching the web, being a non-techie. 

I would appreciate any kind of help. 

Thank you very much! - Gino

Hello Gino,

Probably better to keep your samples away from your system drive. Leave them on an external if you can.

The USB key provides the only authorization you'll need. No de-authorization required. You may want to uninstall SE Vol 1 from the Lion partition to save space, but this is not required.

Use the (Directory Manager) to tell your system where your samples are. I cannot emphasize enough how important it is to keep your samples on an external drive.

Logic Pro will be on the new partition NOT the samples.

 

Hope this helps... Mike B.

Hi, Mike

Thanks for your reply and info.  That couldn't be clearer a response!  I'm now more confident with the next step, thanks to you. 

Much appreciation! - Gino
