Whenever I detect a failed hard drive in a unibody MacBook Pro I always pull it, drop it into a drive caddy and retest. Most of the time the hard drive has failed, but I find quite a few times the drive is fine and the issue is caused by the flex cable. The cable isn't expensive.

The only logical reason to install 10.5 first is if you don't have a newer version of iLife as supplied with 10.5, or haven't previously purchased updated iLife apps you need via the app store. There's no iLife on a retail Snow Leopard.
