I'm having a problem installing Snow Leopard on my 1st gen. MacBook Pro. I am running OS X 10.4.11 on a 1.83 GHz MacBook Pro with 2GB of RAM installed.

I am able to get as far as the "Installing.." screen, but after a couple of minutes, the process stops and displays the error log.

I am not super familiar with error logs but I have picked out a few items that I think may give insight as to why SL won't install. Here are some items that have popped up in the log:

CFGetHostUUIDString: unable to determine UUID for host. Error: 35

and more recently, after 5 attempts:

localhost Unknown[80]: Error Domain=NSCocoaErrorDomain

Underlying Error=(Error Domain=NSPOSIXErrorDomain Code=30 "The operation couldn’t be completed. Read-only file system")

I am completely stumped and have not found anything on the internet or these pages relating to this phenomena.

Thanks for looking...
