Hi All

I have a 13" Macbook Pro with Snow Leopard, and I would like to be able to start up from a Leopard partition on an external drive, as I really like using Freehand which wont work under Snow Leopard.

Can I do this, as I have created the partition with Leopard on it but am having trouble starting up from it.

thx

Doubtful.If it's a recent MBP, Leopard won't contain the correct drivers or boot rom for your system.

As "EvenStranger" mentioned...if this is a 2010 13" MacBook Pro...you can't do it...the minimum OS is 10.6.3. If it's an older 13" MacBook Pro...you may be able to do it.
