I've fitted a new drive to my girlfriend's Macbook. Previously, it was running 10.6. I expected to be able to boot/install from a 10.6 drop-in DVD I have, but this causes kernel panics.
I've read the panics happen on machines newer than the disc being used (I think the disc came with an old machine of mine).
She has an account used to purchase 10.8 on another desktop machine. However, the Macbook won't recognise this through Internet Recovery, because 10.7 was never purchased on that account.
Am I stuck?
