I would like to upgrade my Mac OS X 10.4.11 (Tiger) to Snow Leopard 10.6 and was wondering if this can be possible or do I still have to buy the Leopard Pac.

Help is well appreciated.

David

You have to tell us more about your computer. If it does not have an Intel Processor...then you cannot upgrade to Snow Leopard...OS 10.6.

If it does have an Intel processor...then yes you can upgrade to 10.6...and you do not have to purchase Leopard...OS 10.5.

Hope this helps,

Mods, if it is indeed 10.4.11 as the post indicates, the title is wrong. (10.1.11)

Corrected.

An excerpt from Apple’s Snow Leopard EULA can be found below.

"C. Leopard Upgrade Licenses. If you have purchased an Upgrade for Mac OS X Leopard license, then subject to the terms and conditions of this License, you are granted a limited nonexclusive license to install, use and run one (1) copy of the Apple Software on a single Apple-branded computer as long as that computer has a properly licensed copy of Mac OS X Leopard already installed on it. If you have purchased a Family Pack Upgrade for Mac OS X Leopard license, then subject to the terms and conditions of this License, you are granted a limited non-exclusive license to install, use and run one (1) copy of the Apple Software on up to a maximum of five (5) Apple-branded computers at a time as long as those computers are located in the same household (as defined above), are used by persons who occupy that same household, and each such computer has a properly licensed copy of Mac OS X Leopard already installed on it. The Family Pack Upgrade for Mac OS X Leopard License does not extend to business or commercial users."


So...yes you need to purchase the Mac box set
