Hi,

 

I am thinking of installing snow leopard on my bro's pc and reinstalling it on my mac. But the thing is, I only have an OEM 10.6.3 disc from a friend and naturally it doesn't even allow me to reinstall on the mac. I remember that there is a way for Leopard but I can't find anything on SL.

 

Can anyone help? ;)

If you mean a restore disc for a particular model Mac then no you can't use it. Just purchase the 10.6.3 retail disc, its only about $30

I have the disc back home (that's how I got snow leopard in the first place) but I didn't bring it with me to uni because it's 10.6 and I'll have to download to 10.6.5 again ( and I have very limited internet quota — wherever I am — >.<). I just thought that going from 10.6.3 is more convenient.

 

So that's it, I am stuck with this, no change some .mpkg file?
