  • If your Mac is capable of running OS 10.5.8, and your Mac has at least 1gb of memory and an Intel processor (not a PowerPC processor), then "YES".

    You can either install over top of the OS 10.5.8 installation, OR do a clean install of Snow Leopard on another partition.


    OS 10.6 may not install on newer Macs that were originally sold with OS 10.8 or later, but with the use of an older Intel-based Mac, OS 10.6 can be made to run on some newer Macs.
