I have a hard disk issue and am trying to boot from the DVD in order to repair the disk. The macbook pro was purchased right before Christmas 2010, and the dvd that came with it includes OS X 10.5.2. I have used Software Update and the macbook pro is now running OS X 10.6.6. Should I be able to boot this machine off of the 10.5.2 DVD?

It will not boot. I press the Option key and it lists both the hard drive and the DVD as bootable. When I select the DVD, the screen turns grey, the DVD spins for awhile, stops, and sits there forever.

Macbook Pro 13, Mac OS X (10.6.6)
