New harddisk w/ Snow Leopard in Macbook 1,1

I want to upgrade my old Macbook White 1,1, 1.83 GHz Core Duo from 2006 with a larger HD - so I raced out and got a second hand one with Snow Leopard installed - it came out of a MB Pro unibody.
Tried installing it in the old MB but can't seem to get it to work. A big question mark comes up on the screen when I turn it on.
- Will this harddisk work with my MB? It is Fujitsu MJA2160BH FFS G1 160 GB. It does not have the four jumper pins as the old HD has.
- Will Snow Leopard not run on my MB?
Thank in advance for any help!

It will not have the drivers for your Mac. With it being a 160GB drive, that's bound to be the original drive with a version of SL that only has drivers for the equipment it was shipped with.
You'll need to purchase your own copy of SL.I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
