    Before you begin, does Mountain Lion support your Mac? Mountain Lion does not support Macs older th Before you begin, does Mountain Lion support your Mac? Mountain Lion does not support Macs older than 2007 - 2009.

    If it does, and you have at least 2GB of memory, then go to App Store (the App Store should be on your Mac if you have OS 10.6.8). Purchase and download Mountain Lion and install. The current version of Mountain Lion is OS 10.8.4.

    Note: OS 10.6.8 is the last version of Snow Leopard released, therefore you have the "newest version" of Snow Leopard.

    To get access to the App Store, you need to upgrade to Snow Leopard (OS 10.6) and do "Software Updat To get access to the App Store, you need to upgrade to Snow Leopard (OS 10.6) and do "Software Update" (under "Apple Menu") to bring up to OS 10.6.8.

    Through the App Store you can then upgrade directly to any later OS (OS 10.7, OS 10.8, or OS 10.9).

    However, the maximum OS you can upgrade to depends on your MacBook's Model Identifier (found in "About This Mac" - "More Info" - "System Report").

    Model MacBook1,1 (which only has Intel Core Duo processor) can only go to OS10.6.
    Model ID MacBook2,1 through MacBook4,2 can go up to OS10.7.
    Model ID MacBook5,2 can go up to OS10.9.

    The Snow Leopard install DVD does not come with software packages such as iLife or iWorks.

    Once The Snow Leopard install DVD does not come with software packages such as iLife or iWorks.

    Once installed and updated to OS 10.6.8, your Mac will have:

    1) the Mac Operating System

    2) Utilities (such as Disk Utility, Activity Monitor, Boot Camp Assistant, Terminal, Migration Assistant, Keychain Access)

    3) Applications (such as Text Edit, App Store, Automator, Calendar, Calculator, Font Book, Dashboard, Mission Control, System Preferences, Stickies.)


    Note: if you already have iLife or iWorks applications such as garageband, iMovie, iphoto, etc, they can be imported into the Snow Leopard partition during installation. If doing a clean install to a "fresh" partition, the installer will search for other partitions with older OS and then ask if you want to import the OS settings, applications and/or data from one of the partitions with an older OS.

    "Mac OS" is the Operating System for the Mac. It is what makes a Mac work. It is what causes all "Mac OS" is the Operating System for the Mac. It is what makes a Mac work. It is what causes all the windows, icons and menus to display on the monitor. It allows programs/applications to open and run. It also organizes how files will be stored on a hard drive. Basically, it provides the interface for the user to interact with the Mac.

    The Mac OS has had many codenames over the years as the code has been improved and new releases are made.

    The Mac OS that was released in the summer of 2009 was Mac OS X 10.6 (codenamed "Snow Leopard"). Mac OS X 10.7 ("Lion") was released in summer 2011. The last "update" to "Snow Leopard" was Mac OS X 10.6.8.

    If one has an older Mac with an Intel processor and Mac OS 10.5 or earlier, one needs to install "Snow Leopard" and update it to OS 10.6.8 in order to install any later version of the Mac OS that is compatible with that Mac. The current Mac OS release is Mac OS 10.10 ("Yosemite").
