I am trying to install Mac OS X 10.6 on a 17" MacBookPro 4.1 with a Core2 Duo. But the install says:
Mac OS X 10.6 cannot be installed on this computer.
Any ideas why or, better yet, workarounds?
There are two options
Since Apple changes the install disks every now and then, this procedure may not work exactly as described, but you get the general gist of it.
Sometimes this has to do with the version of the disc versus what the hardware shipped with or what it expects. Are you using the install media that came with the machine or something newer?
