Default Upgrading from PT7.4.1HD to PT9HD

Is there an easy way to upgrade from PT7.4.1HD, that is currently running on 2x2.8GHZ Quad-Core Intel Xeon with Mac OS X Version 10.5.2, to PT9HD.
Can I upgrade the PT first and than to upgrade OS X or PT9HD won't install on OS X Version 10.5.2?
If anyone has any info on this matter, PLEASE share.

Thanks in advance.

Joka

I can just guess, it will check your OS and decide, not to install.
Whats wrong with updating the OS first, anyway ?

If I update the OSX first the current version of PT7.4.1HD will not work on it and I am afraid to lose some of the preferences and plugs in the PT when I install new PT9HD.

just get a new hard drive and clone it before you wipe and move on to a new OS I do this all the time and works like a charm if I need to go back I can just boot up to my old configuration.

Thanks Exxile,

This seems like a logical move. So I'll give it a go.
