we recently purchased some new mac pros for our designers and we were all excited until we needed to connect them up to our printers.  they're printing to a xerox Creo 700 print series and the only supported print drivers are 10.6.8.


after an unsuccessful install of the driver, we did some research and xerox site clearly states this printer series does not support 10.7 or later.


we would love for our designers to take advantage of the new functionalities of 10.8 but it appears the printing issue will prevent that. 


so, is it possible to install the old OS on a new Mac Pro? 


if so, please provide link to detailed instructions.



Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
