You can call Apple with the Serial# handy, & possibly get the original Install Discs cheap, or...
Snow Leopard/10.6.x Requirements...
* Mac computer with an Intel processor
* 1GB of memory (I say 4GB at least, more if you can afford it)
* 5GB of available disk space (I say 30GB at least)
* DVD drive for installation
* Some features require a compatible Internet service provider; fees may apply.
* Some features require Apple’s MobileMe service; fees and terms apply.
Which apps work with Mac OS X 10.6?...
It looks like they might still have it...
It's been reported that if you have a MobileMe account, it may be free from Apple.

hi BDAqua, thanks for your prompt reply.
since you are not mentioning anything about 10.5.8 nor 10.7.4 i assume that you consider 10.6.x as the one i should install, right? the problem is i need a download solution, since i'm in hurry a bit. i found this USB-clean install tortutial and that seams to work quite fine. i'm still not sure where to get the file i need (i guess its not only an upgreade, right?). and i'm still wondering wether or not an os x higher than 10.5.8 would be too much to handle for my old machine?
i hope that someone knows about that :S
thanks and regards,

You have to have at least 10.6.6 Installed to use the App Store to do any OS downloads, like 10.7 or 10.8

Thanks, thats good to know. i guess i will download the new mountain lion with my new macbook and try to install it on my old MBP too. i just hope this old machine will be able to handle the newest OS X. anyway, thanks for your help so far.

I finally found out it won't work. IO X 10.5.8 is the latest one that works on a MBP 2.1 (early 2007).

Nope, unless you maybe need mor RAM, it supports 10.7.x...
But you have to call Apple to get 10.6 anymore.
