Ok so I have a couple questions but first my mac is a 2006? macbook 2.0gh intel core duo 1g ram. 1 is the 80gb hd that came with my macbook died a couple weeks back. When it did, I contacted apple and the guy told me to first use my install dvds to try and recover. After a day of searching I realized that not only had I lost the original tiger disks but also my new leopard ones. So I purchased a couple things, a new hitachi 320gb 7200rpm hd from tigerdirect.com on sale for $65 after $20 mail in rebate, (no affiliation just thought ide share). Also, I got a set of leopard disks on ebay and placed an order through crucial for the 2gb ram upgrade. The hd showed up today and I succesfully installed it. After installing I tryed to install leopard but a box pops up that states cant install on this machine or something to that nature. I can still go into the disk utility and the hd shows but i can not install. Do I need to install tiger first then do an upgrade or is the disks I got from ebay just not compatable? Yes they are for Intel based macs. Second how can I retreive the info off the old hd as i did not back anything up and never set up time machine or anything. Not sure why just thought i was invincible i guess. Any help is appreciated.
