    I have a friend that wants to reinstall her OS but she does not have the disc. Will snow leopard work?

    Yes, they can either buy a retail SL disk or contact Apple for replacements for the original install disks.

    Good point. I assumed the OP was wrong about the year. If it's indeed a PowerBook, SL won't run on it.
    Hey! One out of a hundred isn't so bad! :D

    At least once a week it seems then. Mathematics are fascinating, and my Minecraft playing table neighbour has created a new map in between.

    Then it's from 2006 or later. You can find the exact model by clicking:
     > About This Mac > More Info > Hardware > Hardware Overview > Model Identifier

    A retail version of Snow Leopard will, but not a copy of Snow Leopard that came with your mac.

    Any where I can find how to open this model? I have a mid 2010 model and this one is very different.

    Got it on ifixit. I was looking for a video but they are hard to find. Ifixit had what I needed though.

    You could use it once too, don't you remember? Or can't you search your memory any more? Do I have to show it to you again?
