My sisters MacBook (Late 2006) HDD has failed. I have a spare drive that I would like to install OS X onto to replace the failed drive. Whats the best way to do this and which version of OS is best to install for this model MacBook?

Hello, it'd be best to use the Original Install Disc while booting the MacBook from it, but a Retail 10.6 Install Disc may work...


Snow Leopard/10.6.x Requirements...


General requirements

   * Mac computer with an Intel processor

    * 1GB of memory (I say 4GB at least, more if you can afford it)

    * 5GB of available disk space (I say 30GB at least)

    * DVD drive for installation

    * Some features require a compatible Internet service provider; fees may apply.

    * Some features require Apple’s MobileMe service; fees and terms apply.
