I bought MacBook Pro Mid 2010 17 inches with Intel Core i5 from eBay. Computer came with already installed Mac Os foreign language (not english). Decided to reinstall computer. First of all just for fun installed Windows 7 - everything is ok.

Then i decided to install english Mac Os and...original CD that came completely scratched. Downloaded copy from internet torrent sites. But cant run an installation even using external ODD.

I also own iMAC 24 mid2008 - the same burned discs i tried on it - everything went ok.

Computer behavior:
I insert disc into ODD. Holding pressed ALT and i get options for boot. I see Mac Install DVD and press to run from it and after a few minutes gets icon with line something like STOP. When i try to use disc that came with iMac the computer freezes after i press Mac Os X Install DVD.

originally was installed Mac Os X 10.6.4. Exactly same copy i burned into the disc downloaded from torrent. Thank you for your assistance helping what to do ?

I would suggest you go out, spend the whopping $29 it costs to get a legitimate copy of Snow Leopard.
Or, you could call Apple and request a set of replacement discs for the machine.

Installations of pirated/illegal software is not up for discussion in these forums.

You may want to take a look at the Community Guidelines, particularly the following section:

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.
