    I have an old MBP that got a new HD and I need to put Snow Leopard on it. Only problem is its over 6GB! I can't burn that to a disk. I don't have a thumb/USB drive. Can I hook up the MBP to my iMac and move over the Snow Leopard file I just downloaded? Please help!

    If you bought it, you wouldn't be burning it to a disc...

    Lol, I don't care about piracy. Open the DMG, and run the installer file. I'm pretty sure that's all there is to it.

    I have lion on my iMac. Theres no OS on the old MBP because the HD went bad. How do I start up the old MBP and move the file from my iMac to the MBP? It's too large to fit on a DVD. I also do not have a thumb drive.

    SL can still be purchased from Apple:


    That link is the UK site, but it's available in the USA too...Before you buy, talk to them giving the exact model of your Mac.

    How did you download Snow Leopard? Where did you download it from? Can't find it on Apple's site.

    Use Target Disk Mode.
