Hi all,

I am trying to instal 10.6 Snow Leopard onto my 2011 Macbook Air (Lion native). I have followed many of the instructions listed in related posts, but cannot get the MBAir to boot from the Snow Leopard disc. I have created a USB install disc and it shows when starting up holding the option key. I select it as the boot device and the machine just sits at the gray screen with Apple logo for hours. I did read there could be a firmware issue that won't allow it to boot from a Snow Leopard disc, but I really need to have Snow Leopard cos of the Rosetta support. I tried the install disc with a USB disc drive and got the same result.


Any and all input most welcome

Thanks in advance
