    Default Macbook Pro 13" freezes with os x install disc but not windows !!!

    I have been trying to restore a macbook pro 13" for several days now and this is what happens.

    If I hold c to boot from cd with os x install disc in te machine just hangs on the grey screen indefinitely. If i do the same thing with windows 7 disc it loads and begins the installation process.

    If I try to target mode the install disc, as soon as i select it, machine locks up. Do the same thing with windows, loads just fine. I have wiped the drive in the machine but I cant figure this out. HELP!!!

    Default

    also, verified that osx disc was good. It is leopard 10.5.4. It boots just fine from other machines and even my hackintosh.

    Default I got it :D

    Had to use another mac to create an install image of snow leopard on my external hard drive. I booted from that and bam, worked like a charm.
