    The first step in Upgrading... is to Snow Leopard = OS X 10.6.x

     

    It is Not available as a download...

     

    Do this first...

     

    Check that your Mac meets the System Requirements for Snow Leopard...

    If so Contact Apple in your Country to Purchase a Snow Leopard Disc...

    In the US...

    1-800-MY-APPLE or 1-800-676-2775

     

     

    After the Successful Install, run Software Update to get the latest updates for Snow Leopard.

     

     

    Be sure to make a Backup of your Current System Before Upgrading...

     

     

     

    To Upgrade to Mountain Lion... Your Mac must be one of the following models:

    • iMac (Mid 2007 or newer)
    • MacBook (Late 2008 Aluminum, or Early 2009 or newer)
    • MacBook Pro (Mid/Late 2007 or newer)
    • MacBook Air (Late 2008 or newer)
    • Mac mini (Early 2009 or newer)
    • Mac Pro (Early 2008 or newer)
    • Xserve (Early 2009)
