Mac Specs: Back to my old 2.2GHz C2D MB after selling my MBP and wondering what my next Mac will be :)

If it's the late O6 MBP, this is because you are using discs that didn't come with your machine.
These Macs came installed with Tiger.
You need the original install discs that came with your Mac, and if you don't have them, your options are to call Apple for a replacement set (around $17), or purchase Snow Leopard ($29).
