    snow leopard-- will it install?
    My macbook Pro crashed recently (it's a long story see previous posts).

    The Macbook is a 2008 model (printed on the underside) --- will this have been sold with Snow Leopard installed?

    I am asking because when I bought the machine from ebay it had Mountain Lion installed but obviously this wasn't the original OS. It had obviously been updated but I haven't got the apple ID or the password for the Mountain Lion so I can't re-install it.
    My plan is to buy from apple a Snow Leopard disc and install that. My question is will it install OK on my machine.
    I'm not really bothered about having Mountain Lion I just want to get the mac up and running legally.
    Any thoughts would be welcome.

    Thanks in anticipation
