    Currently I have Leopard on my 2009 iMac and I wanted to upgrade to 10.6. So I had borrowed my friend's 10.6.4 Mac OSX Install DVD. I tried clicking on the INSTALL MAC OS X button and a screen pops up which says, "To set up the installation of Snow Leopard, Click Continue." By the time I click continue an error pops up which says, "Mac OS X Snow Leopard can not be installed on this computer." And I have already tried everything up to booting up from dvd. Please Help!!!!!:apple:

    The only thing I know is that my friend bought the iMac from Best Buy and the disk came with it. I was looking at the disk and it says not to be sold separately :apple:

    Those discs are only able to be used with the macs that they came with and won't work on any other Mac. You'll need to find a retail disc to install snow leopard.

    And, um, that violates your friend's license agreement anyway. The reason they don't give it away is that they're in business, not charity work.
