    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?

    No, i bought this mac from guy who didn't gave me the disk. I try to download from piratebay some dmg's but didn't success.
    I try to repair the disk with DiskUtil under boot install disk.
    Try to use BootCamp to Repartition the disk but again failed. :(

    now i try with Retail DMG downloaded and make restore on USB Flash stick. If have a success i will write ;)
