i can't instal 10.6.3 ?
correct, the oldest version of OSX you can install is the version that was preinstalled when you bought the computer.

10.6 simply does not have the kexts (device drivers) for the newer hardware on you current Mac

The exception to this is that Late 2011 MBPs with HD3000 gfx came with Lion but will run 10.6.8 perfectly as long as you use the 10.6.7 disk that came with the early 2011 MBPs :D
