    Leopard on a Macbook Pro
    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

    Specs:
    Currently 13" Late 2010 MBA, 4GB/128GB; Early 2011 13" MBP, dual core i7 2.7ghz, 4gb ram, 500gb hd
    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.
