Can I run Tiger and Snow leopard on a new macbook pro 15"

Hi
I have a Macbook running Tiger, soon to be replaced (I hope) by a
15" Macbook Pro Sno Leopard. Can I partition the drive on the MBP to run
Tiger also, as I have Adobe Creative Suite 2 and can't afford to upgrade that too. And I really don't want to run to computers.
Thanks

Welcome to Apple Discussions!
Snow Leopard will run CS2 with some limitations.
http://snowleopard.wikidot.com/start
Either find a Mac older than October 26, 2007 you can use until you can bring all your software to Snow Leopard compatibility from these sites*:

Or find an alternative application for the functions you need from the first link that is Snow Leopard compatible if you can use that.

  • Running Lion and Snow Leopard on the same MacBook Pro

    So here's the thing .....apparently Lion won't run Photoshop and Illustrator CS2 (which I'm quite happy with and not about to shell out silly amounts of money to Adobe for even CS3) and apparently there may be (and I stress may be) problems with Word 2008 (likewise money to Microsoft for Word 2011).
    I think, and probably won't know till I've installed it, that I'd like to try Lion on my Macbook Pro but keep Snow Leopard as a separate OS to run Photoshop, Illustrator and if necessary Word until I can afford to pay Adobe (& possibly Microsoft though I can't really see what improvements they can make to Word 2008) the large amounts of money they seem to think they deserve for an upgrade.
    Does anybody out there know if it is possible to run both Lion and Snow Leopard on the same machine and if it is how do I do it?
    Thanks for taking the time to read this.

    CAn I run Lion and snow leopard on the same computer with different sign-ins?

    Alternatively, partition your internal HD and dual-boot it. Do note that you have to reboot to switch back and forth. You can't do it by logging out and back in.

  • Can i install snow leopard on my new macbook pro

    I'm looking at a new laptop but I understand Adobe CS4 won't work on Lion, so I'd rather install Snow Leopard on the new macbook. Is this possible?

    Difficult, and even reported "success" is likely not consistent enough for your *need* for Adobe CS4.
    You can try for a unit off the refurbished list (Apple.com > Store, bottom of the left hand margin is the link).  Units from pre-July and last year can be found, and come with warranties just like brand new.

  • Can I use Tiger and Snow Leopard on my Mac Pro?

    I have a 3 year old Mac Pro with 2 internal hard drives installed by Apple at the time of purchase. At present, I'm using Tiger 10.4.11. I've purchased Snow Leopard (The Family Pack with 5 licenses) and have installed it on my MacBook Pro.
    I haven't put Snow Leopard on my Mac Pro since it is my main, workhorse computer and I have several older applications that aren't compatible with Snow Leopard.
    My question is: Can I install Snow Leopard on my second internal drive and leave Tiger on the main drive? That way I could use either system by changing the start-up drive to the system I want to use. Is this possible, or advisable? Will it work or cause problems?
    Another question: If one of the drives needs repair, could I boot up in the other drive and run Disk Utility to make the repairs instead of booting the computer from the original software CD? (I'm having a problem finding the original Tiger 10.4 System CD in my organizationally challenged graphic design and illustration studio.)
    Thanks for any help anyone can offer.

  • Lion won't operate my app and snow leopard came with my MacBook Pro

    I installed Lion without checking to see if it supported my "can't do without" app.  Now I'm in a panic.  One remedy is to reinstall Snow Leopard, but it came with my new laptop and I don't have any disks.  Is there a solution to that problem?  Is Lion just out of the question, never to be used?  Help! 
    Thanks to all.

    Your new computer came with Snow Leopard installer discs. If you've lost them you can purchase replacements at Apple Store Customer Service at 1-800-676-2775. Or you can purchase a copy of Snow Leopard at any Apple Store for $29.00.
    To reinstall Snow Leopard you will have to first erase the hard drive. I hope that you have backups of your files. If not then be sure to make one before reinstalling Snow Leopard.

  • Do i need to install snow leopard on my new macbook pro?

    i picked up a new macbook pro and it came with snow leopard. i don't know what the snow leopard will enhance and if i should even install the program.

    Your MacBookPro comes with Snow Leopard pre installed. It's not a program, it's an operating system. Mac OS X - Snow Leopard.

  • Can I install Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) on my new MacBook Pro?

    Hi all, I'm user of Mac since lot of time and I`ve got a question. I have bought a Macbook Pro on September 2011 and it cames with Lion and no installation disc. Can I downgrade this Macbook Pro with Lion preinstalled to Snow Leopard with SL Retail disc?

    Not with a retail disc — it doesn't contain a recent enough version of Snow Leopard to boot the machine. You'll need to obtain duplicates from Apple of the discs that would have been shipped with your machine before the release of Lion. Call Customer Relations at the number below and ask to have them sent to you for a small fee.

  • TS1963 DMS Launch error after migration from snow leopard iMac to new Macbook Pro?

    I just purchased a Macbook Pro. I used Migration assistant to transfer my files from my '06 iMac, which was running snow leopard to the Macbook and at start up now get a DMS Launch error every time... any suggestions??
    The error message says check with the developer to make sure DMS Launch works on this version of OS X.  You may need to reinstall the application.
    I have installed all updates as it suggests, to no avail.  I keep getting the error message and report pop up box each time at start up and the only way to be rid of it, is to click ok to send the report - there is no option to stop the report from coming up.
    Does anyone have any suggestions on what I can do to stop the error message appearing and resolve the issue?
    Thanks

  • Can i install snow leopard on my new macbook pro which came loaded with Lion?

  • Is it possible to run Tiger in Snow Leopard using Parallels?

    Hey All,
    Anyone know if it is possible to run Tiger in Snow Leopard using Parallels?
    I am using SPSS 16 and it is not compatible with snow leopard. A temporary fix right now if I partitioned my hard drive and installed Leopard on some extra space to run SPSS. This is kind of annoying because I only need Leopard to use SPSS. I would rather emulate it so I can listen to iTunes and check my email in SL.
    What about Panther? I think I even have a copy of Panther to install in Parallels?
    I read somewhere that the EULA restricts OS X from being emulated, which seems odd for Mac users who need to test or use old software. I understand though about emulating OS X on windows machine though. I guess they need to blow off the whole foot than just cut off one toe.
    Thanks for the thoughts!

    From what I can tell, doing this would be, at best, of dubious legality.
    Even so, the popular opinion seems to be that it would take some degree of hacking to pull off a virtual machine running OS X. I think that unless you are willing and able to undertake such a task, your best bet is to stick with a partition running an old version or wait for SPSS to be updated for Snow Leopard.
    Although...... I have Parallels 4 (current version is 5) and it has an option, when setting up a new Virtual Machine, to install Mac OS X server (see image linked below). Perhaps if you could get a copy of the server edition of the OS you would have more success?

  • Should I upgrade to Snow Leopard/ Lion using a MacBook Pro with 2.26 GHz Inetl Core 2 Duo Processor and 2GB Memory? Can my old macbook take it?

    Should I upgrade to Snow Leopard/ Lion using a MacBook Pro with 2.26 GHz Inetl Core 2 Duo Processor and 2GB Memory? Can my old macbook take it?
    thanks

    Yes. You should be fine with Snow Leopard, but Lion requires a minimum of 2 GBs of RAM. If you upgrade to Lion I would first upgrade your RAM to at least 4 GBs if your model supports it. Also, see:
    How to Install OS X Updates Successfully
    A. Repair the Hard Drive and Permissions:
    Boot from your current OS X Installer disc. After the installer loads select your language and click on the Continue button. Then select Disk Utility from the Utilities menu. After DU loads select your hard drive entry (mfgr.'s ID and drive size) from the the left side list.  In the DU status area you will see an entry for the S.M.A.R.T. status of the hard drive.  If it does not say "Verified" then the hard drive is failing or failed. (SMART status is not reported on external Firewire or USB drives.) If the drive is "Verified" then select your OS X volume from the list on the left (sub-entry below the drive entry,) click on the First Aid tab, then click on the Repair Disk button. If DU reports any errors that have been fixed, then re-run Repair Disk until no errors are reported. If no errors are reported click on the Repair Permissions button. Wait until the operation completes, then quit DU and return to the installer. Now restart normally. 
    If DU reports errors it cannot fix, then you will need Disk Warrior (4.0 for Tiger) and/or TechTool Pro (4.5.2 for Tiger) to repair the drive. If you don't have either of them or if neither of them can fix the drive, then you will need to reformat the drive and reinstall OS X.
    B. Make a Bootable Backup Using Restore Option of Disk Utility:
    Open Disk Utility from the Utilities folder.
    Select the destination volume from the left side list.
    Click on the Restore tab in the DU main window.
    Check the box labeled Erase destination.
    Select the destination volume from the left side list and drag it to the Destination entry field.
    Select the source volume from the left side list and drag it to the Source entry field.
    Double-check you got it right, then click on the Restore button.
    Destination means the external backup drive. Source means the internal startup drive.
    C. Important: Please read before installing:
    If you have a FireWire hard drive connected, disconnect it before installing the update unless you will boot from this drive and install the update on it. Reconnect it and turn it back on after installation is complete and you've restarted.
    You may experience unexpected results if you have installed third-party system software modifications, or if you have modified the operating system through other means. (This does not apply to normal application software installation.)
    The installation process should not be interrupted. If a power outage or other interruption occurs during installation, use the standalone installer (see below) from Apple Downloads to update.  While the installation is in progress do not use the computer.
    D. To upgrade:
    Purchase the Snow Leopard Retail DVD.
    Boot From The OS X Installer Disc:
    Insert OS X Installer Disc into the optical drive.
    Restart the computer.
    Immediately after the chime press and hold down the "C" key.
    Release the key when the spinning gear below the dark gray Apple logo appears.
    Wait for installer to finish loading.
    E. If updating:
    Download and install update(s) 
    Use Software Update, or
    Download standalone updater(s).

    How can I install Snow Leopard on my 15" MacBook Pro without using its DVD drive?

    I'm assuming your dvd drive is broken? if you have a thumb drive large enough (8GB or better), you can use another computer to make a bootable image from the install dvd to the thumb drive. then you can install from the the thumb drive.
