So, I've got a mac book pro I plan on upgrading and selling. Well I should have done some more research, as I attempted to erase tiger and load leopard on it. Oops. Well I didnt realize what a no-no that was until I'd already run the whole erase/install process. (I backed up the files I liked, but didnt make a boot disk). And of course hit a brick wall when it said I couldnt load leopard. Finally did my homework and realized why.
So now, Im trying to undo this mess. I switched out the leopard install disk and tried reinstalling tiger. It refuses to acknowledge the tiger disk (I press/hold the heck out of that c button); it just spits it out and goes to the grey folder screen (I know, no OS on machine).
If someone knows, please share : where do I go from here?
QUOTE Thanks
