How can I get it back? I was last with 10.6.8 and now I'm back to 10.4.11


My HD was dying, the "Genius" at apple told me to replace it and reinstall with the disk I got with the computer. I would upgrade and never kept the discs, is there any way to get Apple to help me get back up to speed with my last version of 10.6.8?


I have time machine files that I can barely get to as this 10.4.11 has limited abilities.


quite a shocker to go back to 2006 !

MacBook (13-inch Late 2006), Mac OS X (10.6.8)

    You need to install a Mac OS X 10.6 DVD(if you don't have one, the online Apple Store sells them) and then run the 10.6.8 combo updater.

    Upgrading to Snow Leopard


    You can purchase Snow Leopard through the Apple Store: Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard - Apple Store (U.S.). The price is $19.99 plus tax. You will be sent physical media by mail after placing your order.


    After you install Snow Leopard you will have to download and install the Mac OS X 10.6.8 Update Combo v1.1 to update Snow Leopard to 10.6.8 and give you access to the App Store. Access to the App Store enables you to download Mountain Lion if your computer meets the requirements.


         Snow Leopard General Requirements


           1. Mac computer with an Intel processor

           2. 1GB of memory

           3. 5GB of available disk space

           4. DVD drive for installation

           5. Some features require a compatible Internet service provider;

               fees may apply.

           6. Some features require Apple’s iCloud services; fees and

               terms apply.


    I would first erase the drive then install Snow Leopard.
