    Hi to all
    I've got MacBook (white) 2,1 - 13" Mac OS X 10.5.8
    I try to install Snow Leopard with Original Gray DVD from same model MacBook 2,1.
    But after start install application showing this text: "Mac OS X Snow Leopard cannot be installed on this computer."
    Try to install on other HDD, repartitioned.
    Partition Map Scheme : GUID Partition Table
    I tried to install modified OSInstall.mpkg file.I Edited the Distribution file and script for checking the system and remove all rows except "return true;"
    But again not success :(
    Can someone help me?
    Thanks in advice

    The system is not verifying the correct model number according to the data stored on the gray discs. Do you have a retail copy you can install instead?
