Problem does not boot from cd installation
What happens to my macbook pro is I want to install the snow leopard and it looks like it installs but when you restart to continue with installation the screen goes gray and the apple logo. I tried several things from start to edit the installation, the boot disk, booting from the cd, after that I have to get hung PRAM makes cmd + alt + p + r to reload ... I've also ido to disk utilities and try to repair.
I have a Macbook pro5, 2 - 2.53 GJz Interl core i5
Boot ROM MBP61.0057.B05
I appreciate any help, thanks

You have to acquire the original Restore DVDs from Apple, which can cost as low as 10 USD, but it varies with your location.
The reason for the Upgrade DVD not working, is that it does not contain drivers for 2010 hardware, as it only contains Mac OS X 10.6.3 and the MacBook Pro came with a special build of 10.6.3. If the DVD would contain 10.6.4, it would work though.
PS: The Upgrade DVD only goes to 10.6.3, there is no Retail DVD with a newer version available.
