Hi there. It's been a while since I've been on the forums, so forgive me if I'm in the wrong spot. I was running Leopard on my Macbook. Then, the hubby needed my laptop for a certain program that only windows could run so he installed bootcamp. In the process, we upgraded to Mountain Lion, which turned out to not be a good idea. Should have known, my macbook wasn't handling it well. It was a lot slower and would crash when you closed the lid. So, I wanted to try and downgrade, or do a clean install of Leopard or Snow Leopard. Well, then, the macbook decided to not boot from a USB or a disc. Sees the disc, but won't boot from it. Hubby was able to get Windows 7 to install and run. So that's what I'm on now. Have been for about a week and I'm starting to lose my mind. I searched this issue and found one person with the same issue, who said they were able to reinstall after they used the recovery disc. What is a recovery disc and where can I get it? It's not in my Leopard disc packaging. Is this the only way to reinstall OSX? Please help. Thanks so much! PS: I'd love to tell you my specs, but since I'm running Windows I have no clue how to find them! ARgh. I do remember I have a 2 GHz, Intel Core 2 Duo though.
