    hey guys so i just read that lion 10.7.5+ is required to boot with the 16gb ram upgrade kit from owc..
    does anyone here have one of these 2.4ghz mbp 2010 models with the OWC ram upgrade?

    my question is.. will it allow u to boot in snow leopard with the kit installed? (10.6.. 10.6.8)

    because its for a music computer and im running some older versions of software that i have licenses for..
    and it really will defeat the purpose of me buying the ram upgrade.. if i cant boot snow leopard with it installed!!

    if it will still boot and only show 8gb of ram in snow leopard.. then im good to go.. if it wont let me boot at all with the 16gb chips in... then i obviously cant buy the upgrade..
