Hi guys, I have a white MacBook here that I upgraded the hard drive to a bigger size, and I'm trying to install Snow Leopard Server on it. I keep getting an error "Mac OSX cannot be installed on this computer." I read some other posts on here where people said you have to create a 5GB partition for it to work, but that didn't do the trick for me. Could it be because I'm trying to install the Server version, or should that matter? Thanks

-Matt

What are the specs for the White MacBook? And what kind of Snow Leopard server disk are you using? If it's model specific, it may not work.
