    The first step in Upgrading... is to Snow Leopard = OS X 10.6.x


    It is Not available as a download...


    Do this first...


    Check that your Mac meets the System Requirements for Snow Leopard...


    Snow Leopard Tech Specs



    If so Contact Apple in your Country to Purchase a Snow Leopard Disc...



    In the US...

    1-800-MY-APPLE or 1-800-676-2775



    After the Successful Install, run Software Update to get the latest updates for Snow Leopard.



    Be sure to make a Backup of your Current System Before Upgrading...




    To Upgrade to Mountain Lion... Your Mac must be one of the following models:

    • iMac (Mid 2007 or newer)
    • MacBook (Late 2008 Aluminum, or Early 2009 or newer)
    • MacBook Pro (Mid/Late 2007 or newer)
    • MacBook Air (Late 2008 or newer)
    • Mac mini (Early 2009 or newer)
    • Mac Pro (Early 2008 or newer)
    • Xserve (Early 2009)
