I recently had my MBP (2007) keyboard replaced and had the HDD upgraded to 500GB.


I installed Leopard, which came with the laptop, that went well, then I tried to run my upgrade (not bootable) for Snow Leopard. The installation FROZE, the machine shut off. And I had a brick, non-bootable.


So now I'm RE-installing Leopard.


Any guesses on what the problem is? This is no fun. I did not anticipate this many headaches and I'm STILL without a machine to restore my Time Machine data to. Not amused.
