That is Leopard and you really need to list your model and year iMac for a more accurate response.

OS 10.5 = Leopard
OS 10.6 = Snow Leopard
OS 10.7 = Lion

Since your iMac has an Intel "core duo" cpu...the maximum OS you can upgrade to is OS 10.6.8.

OS 10.7 requires at least a "core 2 duo" cpu...which you do not have. So no Lion.
