    Snow Leopard Installation Issues
    I have a Macbook that I bought in 2008 and am currently running Tiger, 10.4.11 and I am trying to install Snow Leopard with no success. I insert the CD, does not load or show up on the desktop. I tried to restart the comp while holding down C and nothing happens. I have been reading about firmware and I am not sure if I need to update that? I bought the mac box set if that helps. Any ideas???

    Have you inserted any other discs to make sure your drive is working?
    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.

    Specs:
    iMac late 2007 10.11.b4, iMac 2008 10.10.5, Macbook2007 10.7.5, Mac Mini 10.7.5, iPhone 3GS Note 8!!
    Check to see if the 10.6 DVD is dirty. This is a brand new copy from Apple correct?

    If so and everything else reads but the 10.6 DVD, take it back and ask for a new DVD.

    You keep referring to your Snow Leopard disk as a "CD." It is a DVD, not a CD. Do other DVDs play properly in your drive?

    Are you sure you can install/upgrade to Snow Leopard 10.6 from Tiger 10.4?
    I had to install Leopard 10.5 first.

    Hope this helps.
