    Hello, all!

    My recent computer at work has been having issues. They handed me a Macbook Pro with ONLY windows on it, but without any of the drivers.

    I would like to remove windows and install Snow Leopard. I have the Mac OS X Leopard Install DVD, but Windows just spits it back out at me. I've tried turning the computer on with the disc in, and I've also tried putting the disc in after boot-up, going to My Computer>DVD Drive. Nothing seems to work.

    Anyone have any pointers? Thanks!

    Turn the computer on with the disc in the drive, and hold C while it boots.

    try rebooting the macbook with the cd in it while pressing the "alt" or "option" or ":apple:" key. I guess you can choose to boot from CD then

    The computer might be newer than your Leopard disk.
