Hi there,

What mac do you have? What RAM is installed? Also what size is the hard drive and how much free space do you have left on it? Sorry for all the questions but these will help us to help you

Well for starters insufficent memory. It is a late 2009/early 2010 model than can handle 8GB of memory. OWC and rucial recommended. Then go to the little Apple top right corner, select About this Mac > More Info > system Report > SATA and that will tell you the size of the drive and free space available.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
