Hello everyone,


I would like to upgrade from tiger to mountain lion. I know that I have to upgrade from Tiger to Lion first.

My CD superdrive is out of order. How can I upgrade safely and how much would it cost?


I tried to unarchive a copy of Lion (.tgz) but it did not work out


Thank you for your help!

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.5.8)

    Basically you need to find a DVD reader that will work, since the only legitimate way to install Snow Leopard is with its DVD.


    That can be another Mac, with which you could use FireWire Disk Mode to install Snow Leopard on your MacBook.


    You do not need to upgrade to Lion first. You may upgrade from Snow Leopard directly to Mountain Lion.
