I have a friend running OSX 10.6.5 on a 2010 Macbook. She has never updated her OS or run permissions repair or disk repair. Naturally she no longer knows where her original instal disks are. Her computer is now running so slowly that it is almost unusable.
She does not want to upgrade her OS due to compatibility issues.
My question is can I boot her laptop with my old OSX 10.6.6 instal disk just to run Disk Repair in Disc Utility or should I try downloading Onyx for 10.6 and run that? I will do a time machine backup first as I have a spare USB hard drive I can lend her.
