I have a MacBook Pro that came with OS X 10.6. I have since lost the disc and need to reinstall the Mac OS X. I have another disc on it’s way from Apple but I could do with using my computer in the meantime.
A friend of mine has a slightly newer Macbook Pro, also with OS X 10.6. I have tried using his OS disc but I get the message:
Mac OS X can’t be installed on this computer.
Seeing as it's a MacBook I don’t think this message is entirely accurate! Is there a way around this?
Someone suggested that this may happen if the HDD was formatted incorrectly. I have formatted it as Mac OS Extended (Journaled) but this didn’t make any difference.
