Dear Forum.

 

This is actually a hardware question plz this is not a meant as a discussion whether Lion beats Snow Leopard etc.

 

Plenty of threads around communities tells how to install 10.6.8 over 10.7  But there is a warning sign!!! :

 

I have a brand new top-of-the-line MacBook Pro (shipped with 10.7.2) and for some reason it won´t even start from a 10.6.8 DVD

 

I was thinkin´ go scratch the 750 GB HDD at one of my other Macs, but for some reason I´m afraid that Apple now have bugged the HW so it won´t be able to install 10.6.8 no matter how sofisticated changes are made??

 

Anyone knows or have any experience??

 

With love from Denmark, Thanks everyone for reading this


MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.2)

You can quit trying, as you simply can't install SL on your computer. Like it or not, that's the way it is.
