Please help!

I'm trying to find which version of OSX is installed on an old MacBook Pro which won't boot up.

I can see the hard disk and all its files from another Macbook Pro when the broken one is in Target Disk Mode.

Is there any system file I can search for that will give me a clue??

Write this in a Terminal-window:
defaults read /Volumes/YourDiskName/System/Library/CoreServices/SystemVersion ProductVersion
Drag the disk icon from the desktop or from another location to the Terminal window, to obtain the correct path for the disk.
