Can someone help please! I'm trying to restore a 2011 MacBook Pro with my Snow Leopard DVD to return to a retailer - but it won't boot from the disc? I had previously been trying to restore it to Lion, but realised as I couldn't that it must not have shipped with it. I'd already erased the HD ready.


When I try to boot from the disc, I get three beeps, repeating over and over.


I'm sure it was a French machine as its AZERTY (hence why it's going back, another story). Could this be a factor?!


Any help would be gratefully received! It's driving me nuts!!
