    iMac - Polycarbonate intel core 2 duo
    After reformatting an imac polycarbonate intel core 2 duo to OS X 10.4, i am now trying to put 10.6 on it, it is a legit DVD, but when rebooting it to install mode it claims the software can't be installed on this computer, how can I overcome this and why would it say this, i have had a look at the specs for 10.6 and it has an intel core 2 duo, enough ram and space, why would it say this if i meet the spec?

    Specs:
    2011 13" MBP 2.3ghz, 8gig ram, OS 10.7.5
    Is this "legit DVD" gray colored? If so...the gray disks are model specific & can only be used with the model Mac they shipped with.

    I think you need to buy the boxed set when upgrading from tiger to snow leopard
