Upgrade OS Software from Tiger to Snow Leopard
Can I upgrade my Macmini2.1 Intel Duo Core running on OS 10.4.11 to SnowLeopard?
I have the CD for Snow Leopard.
Is this a good question?
You have a Mac with a Intel Core Duo processor, so you can install Snow Leopard. To check how much RAM you have got, open About this Mac, and check Memory. To upgrade to Snow Leopard, I recommend at least 2 GB of memory. You can buy more RAM at OWC or Crucial.
To upgrade to Snow Leopard, first buy Snow Leopard > http://store.apple.com/us/product/MC573Z... Then, make a backup of all your files, insert the DVD and upgrade.
1. Insert the Snow Leopard install DVD into your DVD drive.
2. Double-click the 'Install Mac OS X' icon in the Mac OS X Install DVD window.
3. The Mac OS X installer window will open.
3. Select the destination drive for Snow Leopard.
After upgrading, open the Software Update, and install Mac OS X 10.6.8. As your processor is 64-bit, you can upgrade to 10.7.5, but only after upgading to 10.6.8.
Hope this helps!
