    Hi there folks!

    I have a problem.

    My late-2007 Macbook's hdd got screwed and I bought a new one.

    Now I try to install Snow Leopard but Macbook won't boot from the install disc.

    It spins the disc a couple of seconds and then ejects it.

    Key commands don't help. Startup manager won't show up if I keep pressing the option key during startup and same goes with pressing c for booting.

    After spinning and ejecting the disc the folder with question mark.

    What should I do?

    Thanks a lot.

    Thanks for a quick answer.

    I have a Windows 7 PC so I could try to install the OS from a flash drive.

    But is there any possibility for the installation to begin from a flash drive since I'm not able to even open the Startup Manager?

    The fixes behind the link didn't help.

    How can I make a bootable flash drive with OS X from a Windows 7 PC?
