You usually get that message when you don't have the disks that came with your Mac. Those disks are model-specific.

If you do have the right disks and your MB doesn't want to recognize them, try Resetting MacBook and MacBook Pro System Management Controller (SMC) and Resetting your Mac's PRAM and NVRAM.

Let us know how it goes.
