Hallo everynun, I wish to reisntall Snow Leopard (freshly) on my 2010 17" MBP. However I don't have the install disk that came with the computer, just the retail disk. It is my understanding that I can't boot with the10.6.3 retail, I need a machine specific disc. What the dicks. My question is, is there a way I can format the drive and then use the retail disc version of Snow Leopard to install? I REALLY want to format my drive ASAP. Thx brothers.
