    Hi, everyone.

    I have a older 2008 Macbook white, now running Mac OS X 10.7 Lion. Is it possible that i install Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard on a other partition? Would i still able to access Lion?

    I am asking it, because i know you can't install older Windows while you have newer Windows version. Not sure if same apply to Mac OS X.

    Thank You

    Yes you can do it. I have Snow Leopard, Lion, Mountain Lion and Windows 7 all on my MacBook. Just create a new partition and load Snow Leopard onto it. After the install is complete you should install rEFIt so you have the option to choose either OS on boot.
