Trouble installing OS X
Alright it seems as though the old HDD was probably okay on my neighbor's MacBook(white). But guess what... she got an upgrade anyhow.
I have owned three Macs, an iBook G4, a Macbook(white), and an aluminum Macbook(2009).
Three startup disks were used for trying to install the operating system several tries and one problem. All of them result in the error message: "Mac OS X can not be installed on this computer."
I used OS version 10.4, disc version 1.0 from an iBook G4, no dice.
I used OS verson 10.4.6 from the white Macbook vintage 2006 AHT version 3A104, no good.
I used OS 10.5.6 from the aluminum MacBook, disc version 1.0 and that did not work.
This MacBook is maybe a 2008 vintage and am I using the wrong startup disc?
How many versions are there and why is it so particular about which one I use? Is there any way to configure this so I can install the Leopard?
Is this a good question?
