ImMrGEE Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

I am new to the mac world so this may sound elementary to some. I bought my daughter a 2008 Macbook (the white one) and it only had a 160 gb hdd. I upgraded the machine to mountain lion and backed up her files in time machine. Since the hdd is so small I bought her a 1TB hdd and installed it. I have been trying everything to boot to the external hdd that time machine is on or i have a 10.7 Lion USB, or if needed I have a Mac OS X Snow Leopard cd if I need to go back that far. When I turn the system on it chimes has a whit/grey screen and then a folder with a question mark starts flashing and that is it. Please help me!


MacBook, Mac OS X (10.6.4)
