I bought my MacBook Pro i7 on February 2011, cant recall the pre-installed version.
However i have the original disc of Snow Leopard (10.6 & 10.6.3).
For some reason when i try to boot through the disc by holding "C" or (Option Key, and clicking on the disc). I can hear the disc reading for 10-20 secs then it stops (while the screen is in apple logo without loading icon". Of course i've tried it several times.
So i decided to use another method.
I have connected my MBP to my iMac using a FireWire.
MBP: powered on while holding " T " (FireWire Mode)
iMac: Formatted MBP drive, inserted Snow Leopard disc, and started the install (as it installs to MBP drive).
Now the issue is it went through the installation for like 15-20%, then my iMac rebooted automatically and its stuck in White Screen (Apple logo without loader icon). it has been almost 1 hour..
Are there any suggestions?
Sending it to Apple Store is my last option, as i would really like to learn more about Mac OS X.
Thanks in advance.
