I'm replacing my hard drive in my 2007 macbook (32-bit kernals) and the newest OSX I can get is Snow Leopard. I managed to get a downloaded version from CNET.com but Im not sure how to format it to a USB before removing my old drive. I can't just drag and drop the file onto the USB right?

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

    None of the legitimate downloads can be used to make a bootable system on their own; they are all updaters which require a disk-based installation to use.

    First, you cannot download Snow Leopard. If you have one it is illegal. A legal copy of Snow Leopard must be purchased from the Online Apple Store for $19.99.


    We won't help you with anything but a legal copy.
