Hi, there is no problem with the combo10.6.8 for 99.99999% of the people.
Do NOT attempt to use a Tiger/10.4 Disc to repair anything even if you had one.
"Try Disk Utility
1. Insert the Mac OS X 10.6 Install disc, then restart the computer while holding the C key.
2. When your computer finishes starting up from the disc, choose Disk Utility from the Installer menu at top of the screen. (In Mac OS X 10.4 or later, you must select your language first.)
*Important: Do not click Continue in the first screen of the Installer. If you do, you must restart from the disc again to access Disk Utility.*
3. Click the First Aid tab.
4. Select your Mac OS X volume.
5. Click Repair Disk, (not Repair Permissions). Disk Utility checks and repairs the disk."
If it still reboots to the blue screen, reinstall 10.6.x
Then the big 10.6.8 Combo...
Repair Permissions afterwords, reboot.

I did the Utility Repair didn't find anything wrong with the disc, so I am installing 10.6 now still running, I see what happened when I get home. I'll try the 10.6.8 Combo after it finishes the reinstall.

It worked!! I got home and it was waiting for me to log in. Now I am going to download the link that you send me and I'll be keeping my figures crossed that it don't cause it to crash again!!

The link to the update I download that same one yesterday and it cause my computer to crash. Is there a way to bypass 10.6.8 to get mountain lion??

I already upgraded to 10.6.7 and I have the app store but when you click on Mountain Lion it gives you a message that says that your system needs to have 10.6.8 to run the software upgrade..:(. I was excited when I saw the app store too...

I wonder if we could get away with the smaller 10.6.8 delta update that requires 10.6.7 now???
See if the Disk is issuing any S.M.A.R.T errors in Disk Utility...
Open Activity Monitor in Applications>Utilities, select All Processes & sort on CPU%, any indications there?
How much RAM & free disk space do you have also, click on the Memory & Disk Usage Tabs.
In the Memory tab of Activity Monitor, are there a lot of Pageouts?
