    Does anyone know if you can run 10.6 Snow Leopard Server on the 2011 MacBook Pros?

    Please don't ask me why I want Snow Leopard - I have my reasons.

    There has to be a work around, I've spend about two hours searching for an answer with no luck.

    I'm sure install discs that came with the MacBook Pro contain the necessary files for the processor support.

    It's just a matter of putting the pieces together I imagine.

    Nope... won't work. Have the discs sitting here, tried, no love. Could probably hack it on, but not willing to devote the time.

    I just decided to tinker with it for a few minutes and guess what? It works like a charm. Trying the 10.6.7 combo update now... will post a screenshot once it reboots...

    Reboot complete, see screen shots.

    Maan, now you're going to have to make me try again :)

    Just wondering if there's a difference in the install media. Mine's actually 10.6.3 (MC588Z/A V10.6.3 REV 1)

    Mine is 10.6, the update brought it to 10.6.7.

    I wonder if it installed on mine because it saw two hard drives?

    Then again, I didn't mess with it too much. In fact, it was easier than I thought it was going to be.
