    Iv'e erased my MacBook pro hard drive (was running leopard) and want to reinstall. Am getting a message stating that it can't install the software because it can't find OS X 10.4

    G'day and welcome to the forums.

    How old is the MBP? If it came with say Leopard, you cannot go backwards. What of theTiger discs? If the machine is older, say 2005/2006, did the Tiger install disc come with the computer when brand new? The first five or six MBP used Tiger, from then on February 2008, Leopard was the system installed. Intel Macs use a different set of Tiger install discs to PowerPC machines.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
