    I would like to clarify what you're exactly doing.  Are you inserting and booting from a Snow Leopard Installation disc and you are unable to continue?  The reason is ask is that I'm not sure if the Snow Leopard Installation disk contains ver. 10.6.7.  At the risk of sounding silly, or are you trying to directly install the 10.6.7 Upgrade file from the Apple support site to your computer, which is currently running 10.5.8, which is what the LOG Report you provided seems to indicate.  If so, you cannot do this.  You would need to first purchase and install from the Snow Leopard Installation Disk.  THEN run the 10.6.7 Upgrade.

     

    Let us know.

     

    Hope this helps

    Yes thats exactly what ime doing. Uhm what version is the original Snow leopard just 10.6 or?

    I'm afraid I don't understand WHICH of the two above procedures you are doing? Please specify.  And I believe the Snow Leopard Installation Disk is 10.6, yes.  The Updates would have come later after it was released.

     

    Hope this helps
