Maybe another apple ID logged in to the appstore - launchpad/appstore is still trying to update software that isn't linked to your apple ID. Log in using the original ID and complete or cancel the downloads, then log in with your own ID again.

Two more methods: Disk Utility will allow you unmount single partitions or drives. After you've done the install/update, Disk Utility will also let you remount the partition without reboot. Dragging one partition of a multipartition drive to the trash will bring up a dialog asking if you want to unmount just the one partition, or all of them. To get the ...

The Installation of new operating system will normally not touch your files. What it might have happened is you created a new user account and all your files are in the old user account.

I'm not that terribly familiar with target disk mode and whether or not you can perform an installation with it, however you should be able to install OS X Snow Leopard just fine if you take the conventional approach of formatting the hard drive OS X currently resides on and installing Snow Leopard with install media.
