    Hi all,

    My Macbook completely crashed over the weekend and wiped everything. I've managed to reinstall most things, however, I just can't install any OS X updates. It currently has 10.5.8 and everytime I download the updates, such as 10.6.6 is says "This update requires Mac OS X version 10.6". Also, when I try to install any recent software, it also says it needs at least 10.6 - can anyone PLEASe, please help?

    I've tried Repairing Disk permissions too.

    Thanks for any help

    Kev

    10.5.8 is the last version of the Leopard operating system. You cannot install updates for system 10.6.x, because you do not have system 10.6. In order to install the 10.6.x updates you need to upgrade to Snow Leopard.

    Ok, cool (sorry for being stupid on this!) Assume that's the version you need to buy (in that I can't just 'update')?
