I have a mid 2007 2.4Ghz Intel core 2 duo which I have upgraded all the way through to Mountain Lion (via 4GB RAM boost) Everything has been fine for months but after some work was done on my house where the power was significantly messed with in my absence the Mac would reboot or get stuck in reboot music loop usually at about 5am before freezing up completely. After some research and discussions I (foolishly) decided to reinstall from original disks and kind of restore from there. I have spent the day software updating (to about 2009) but am still stuck in OSX 10.4.11 and cannot get to 10.5.8 in order to install Snow Leopard. Have tried SL but in just asks me to restart to begin install but restarts to same screen with no licence agreements or way to move forward. I also have a Time Capsule which it will of course not recognise. As you can probably tell I am at the very limits of my skills/knowledge so any help would be greatly appreciated.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.4.11)

    Hello, you normally don't need 10.5.8 to go to 10.5/Snow Leo, but what is the 2z691-****-A number on the 10.6 Install Disc?

    Yeah, that's the Retail 10.6.3 Disc, should work.


    I do think it needs some hands on help.
