    Hi, I'm in the mille of upgrading my MBP with 8gb of Ram and an SSD. I've performed surgery and am attempting to boot of a snow leopard disk. When I boot i get the tone, hold option c and wait. After a few seconds I get a kernel panic saying the cpu is unsupported.

    Any ideas or suggestions??

    Thanks.

    My first guess would be the RAM. It's almost always the RAM in these situations. Try putting the old RAM back in and see what happens. And make sure that it is fully seated. Sometimes it takes a pretty big push to get it in there correctly.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I was just about to do it when I decided to look for the disk that came with it instead of the generic SL disk. It seems to be booting this time although it seems to be stuck on the apple for a while. This as a 10x longer job than it was on my alu macbook.

    Anyway, as I'm typing it has booted off it's disk. MANY THANKS.:)

    Try resetting PRAM and SMC.
