Hi there


Just wondering if anyone could help me? I have brought a copy of OS X Snow Leopard from Apple and have gone to install it on my old 2008 Macbook Pro thats running OS X 10.5.8 and a message poped up saying Alert This software requires Mac OS X 10.6 to be installed. I took the disc out and it says its 10.6.1 is there a way round this?

    Tell Apple that they sent you the wrong disk; you need a retail one.
