Those discs wouldn't meet the ten year rule here so I'm not sure they would be allowed.

What OS do you want to run?
You can run anything from Snow Leopard 10.6.8 to El Capitan 10.11.
Apple doesn't use physical media anymore.
The last OS on disc was Snow Leopard (a dual layer 6+GB disc).
To install Lion through El Capitan you download the installer from Apple, install it on an 8GB USB stick and install from that. The installer also creates a recovery partition on the HD, so that at any time you can boot the recovery partition to run Disk Utility or reinstall the OS over the internet.

Find someone with an Apple ID who has previously purchased Lion through El Capitan. It will still be downloadable in their "purchased" items. Download, install on a USB stick and then install on your machine. I have access to Lion, Mavericks, Yosemite and El Capitan and could make a USB stick for you for the cost of a stick. Also have some spare Snow Leopard discs.

Will check to see if I have the originals for that machine, but you really don't want to be running Leopard if you do anything on the internet.

Hi there,

Your laptop with Mac OS X 10.5.7 has been released on June 8, 2009. So, u will have to wait until June 8, 2019 for these Leopard discs to be uploaded here (ten year rule) I suppose or found another solution with someone like sfp1954 suggest it to u. Smile
