    Unhappy Cant Install MAC OS X 10.4.6
    Well,

    This is the 2nd Apple machine I am working on.
    It is a MacBook Pro 15" Intel Duo Core 2.33 ghz.

    I am trying to install the dvd that came with it, THE ORGINALS!
    However, I get the following message :

    " This software cannot be installed on this machine, restart or startup disk"

    Anyone have any ideas?

    And how should I set up the partitions for the 80 gig Sata ?
    1 or 2 or 3 partitions, and what type for each ?

    Thank you in advance,
    Donnie

    Are you sure it's the DVD that came with the machine? How are you trying to install? You hold down the C key at bootup and boot from the disc.

    Yup, I get to the select english dialouge, then it goes to the installer, and I cannot click continue. I automatically spits that error out at me inside of the installer.


    Now I did notice that the discs say MacBook Pro 17" on the install dvd, and I have a macbook pro 15"

    Hope that helps.

    Did you buy this MacBook Pro new from Apple or a Mac reseller? Looks like they put in the box the wrong DVD...
