Hi everyone,

hopefully I'm posting this in the right thread and apologies if this is covered elsewhere but I'm exhausted from looking.

I got a second hand macbook very reasonably, however it did not come with it's original discs. the machine was running 10.8.5 I believe.

I borrowed a friends 10.6.1 discs- also from a Macbook and when I tried to install, I was informed this would not work. Fair enough. I tried something in Disc Utility though, that I found on another forum and have subsequently wiped the hard drive.

The disc now loops between the useless restore section; which I dont understand well enough to see if I'm doing something wrong, and a white screen with a grey folder marked ? if the disc isn't in.

Is there any way I can sort this using these discs? I don't want to spend any more money ideally, I can't afford to. Please, let me know!
