    the DVD is OS X Lion(10.7) or OS X Snow Leopard(10.6)?

    OS X Lion were never shipped with DVD and they are not even available in the Mac App store now, you'll need to buy it from the Apple Online Store which they will then provide you a redemption code in the Mac App Store.

    You will still need to have 10.6.8 installed to be able to upgrade to OS X Lion or later.

    You have downloaded a torrent of OSX 10.7 and are asking why it does not install ? Seriously

    Just download Yosemite from the App Store for free - but you will need at least 10.6.6 on that Mac or another Mac......

    99% of torrents are perfectly fine. People are just scaremongering. Its got nothing to do with it being a torrent if it doesn't install from two different sources.

    Bloke's running Leopard. He doesn't have the app store. A .app or dmg file made into a recovery drive is the only way to upgrade.

    Even if you have a legit copy of Lion, you won't be able to install it over 10.5.8 directly.

    You first need to spoof your system version to 10.6.8 by editing the system version .plist file.

    After that, you will be able to install Lion (assuming there is no hardware problem and the installer is ok).

    Macintosh HD/System/Library/CoreServices/SystemVersion.plist
