Macbbok Pro 3,1

2.4 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo

Mac OS X 10.6.8

Bus Speed 800 MKz

Serial # W87230....



Going to Get Info for Chess the "Open in 32 bit mode" is not checked which from what I've seen on the internet means the computer is running in 64 bit.

Graphis card is NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT



Install Error Message:

We could not complete your purchase. OS X Mountain Lion is bnot compatible with this computer.


Will this computer run MT? If so, how do I get it installed?
