This is the first real problem I've ever run into... I have a first gen Macbook, my hard drive finally died, so I picked up a new one. I do not have the original disk that came with my Macbook. I can't get the old hard drive running at all to retrieve or backup data (my dad had deleted all the time machine backups after I moved out of state). I honestly do not know what do to from here and I've been researching on what to do for a few days but I can't seem to find an answer. All I have is the Snow Leopard OS disk. If anyone can direct this poor Macbook n00b, I would really appreciate it.
